IF you like a quiet breakfast overlooking the bay, then this is the place for you. Morning coffee, Spinach with eggs, fruit and toast. Filling to the soul.

The view is nice. I ordered a cappuccino, which was nothing to write home about. My boyfriend had a breakfast burrito. Service was slow and inefficient. Prices were decent.

The coffee is good. The views are great. There are tasty muffins and scones to eat. There are a few simple breakfast items with eggs and fruit. This is nothing fancy, but a fun place to relax, have some coffee and a snack, and enjoy...More
