Delicious coffee, healthy super crunch pancakes, fresh smoothies, eggie breakfasts with fresh bagels! Add to it a gorgeous harbor view while you sit and eat.

This café is located right on the marina, and has a large number of outdoor tables to enjoy the view and people watching. The first morning we were there, we couldn't even find a seat it was so busy. The next morning we got there earlier and found a table with a nice view. They have a large variety of... More

This was a late breakfast / early lunch on a hot sunny morning. Stood in a line to order from the one ordering / pay station, then was given a pager to come and collect my meal. By the time I got the meal, the coffee was gone - apparently it takes more time (than what?) to make a panini.... More

Lox bagel is incredible. We drive all the way from San Diego for this treat. Right on the water, great views, people watching and great bagels and coffee.

Freshly made deli sandwiches are the best! Salads are also quite good with a nice size serving. Definitely a delicious casual place for a bite to eat in the relaxing outdoor seating area.

You can tell quality when you taste it. This is not your average ice cream. Excellent choice of both unique and all-time favorites, truly something for everyone. Indoor or outdoor seating right on the water. No comparison around here!

During a recent trip we visited 3 times for the bagels and chocolate peanut butter smoothie! The location is great as you sit outside overlooking the harbour. The bagels and drinks tasted great.

Came here with my wife for a drink. On one side you get coffee on the other you get smoothies. We chose a smoothie. I had a mango & strawberry smoothie whilst my wife had mixed berry smoothie. Very tasty . They have outside seating although when we were there it was cloudy and rather chilly.

Love the ice cream. Very creamy. Got the Kahlua coffee and blueberry cheesecake. We got the Cookie Monster one and taste good! I love that blue color.
