Quaint little lace with really good sushi! Great friendly staff! Nice entertainment started at 9pm. Good sake and beer selection.

I have been going here for years. Coffee is so tasty & pastries are so fresh. Many selections to choose from for lunch or dinner. Affordable gifts are also available. It's your one-stop shop.

Beer flights (try the mead), wine flights, sake flights, creative food choices including sushi, salads, apps, sandwiches and many other things. It's a cool vibe with indoor and outdoor seating. Definitely a must do when in Avalon.

Had a delicious lunch! Lots of vegetarian or vegan options! Beautiful salads, small plates, sandwiches, etc. I had the Mandarin salad with shrimp and it was light and healthful. Everyone was raving about the Roasted white bean and poblano soup! A nice diversion from all the Mexican, burger fare common on the island. Nice wine and beer selections, with coffee... More

By far the worst restaurant experience in my life. We should have left when the server told us they have no high-chairs. But we were enticed by the great location and the idea of being able to get beer, sushi and ice cream all in one place. The service was slow and mediocre. The quality of the food was somewhere...

We thought we would try a quick lunch at CC Gallagher since they remodeled it. Gone are all the retail stuff & paintings for sale. We ordered from the sushi & the lunch panini menu. Great spicy tuna roll and a chicken pesto panini. Very well made and presented.

We came here for just a beer. They have several on tap. We saw people eating wonderful looking burgers. We will do that next time.

A strange combination of foods: coffee and smoothies, next to the sushi operation, and then upscale home decor and souvenirs for sale, all within the same renovated bank building. Coffee drinks seemed overpriced, but they were tasty and certainly not from a fast food chain.

I found this place to be pretty pricey, even for Catalina. The food was pretty good, but it took a long time to get. We went after lunch and before dinner. The place was about half full, and we waited about 25 minutes for the food. The good news is we got about 3 ounces of chips to eat while... More

We stopped here for a latte just after we landed in Catalina. The decor and ambience are great. We sat outside which was pleasant. We had good service and good coffee. We considered eating lunch here and the menu and the food looked very good, but we weren't quite ready for lunch yet. Seems like a great place for coffee... More
