This is an easy walk from the downtown cruise terminal. It was a cool, drizzly day so the coffee was welcome. It was good coffee too. The service was super and the folks were very friendly and welcoming. We had a veggie quesadilla and when the ladies learned we were going to share it (after it had been delivered) they... More

This place is right on the waterfront downtown. If they are open it is worth the stop. We had omelettes and they were very wonderful with very fresh veggies, very healthy and tasty. I also hear the oatmeal is impossible to resist once you have tried it!

Highly recommend this cafe. Breakfast was great. Really good coffee. We came back just before closing time for tea and cake. Lovely friendly cheerful staff who don't seem disillusioned by the hordes of visitors .

Sandwich board outside drew us in to this marvelous little place. Stopped in for the soup and found amazing baked goods. Loved the atmosphere and décor. Soup and the German Chocolate Cake were delicious

We came from our excursion with time to kill. We shopped just a little and ran into this wonderful little shop that had coffee and baked goods (home made!!!) and brunch/lunch offerings. I had a latte, hubby and a coffee and we shared an amazing blondie that had maple frosting. I don't expect to find this kind of thing right... More

A cute place with a friendly staff, tasty hot chocolate, and good coffee. Internet is not free, though. It's easy access to the ports and a hangout for the locals.

A cute local bistro with fresh coffees and amazing local pastries. A great array of sandwiches and salads. Relaxed environment with views to the water across the street.
