We only stopped in for coffee but were intrigued by the individual care given to each order. And to see how they brew tea! It almost made me wish I was a tea drinker.

On the wharf there is a surfeit of places selling the same sort of candy and seafood restaurants (understandable) but this place is a breath of fresh air if you just want. A bite to eat and a recharge. Very clean, nice style and friendly...staff. We got tea coffee and sandwiches, they don’t have a large food selection but it makes sense given the competition nearby.More

Our first visit as we were strolling along the wharf. Very clean and inviting inside. The staff was quite friendly and assisted us in our selections from the organic, local ,sustainable menu. Coffee and tea were delicious. The pastries looked inviting however we did resist...our temptation this time.More

A great spot for a cup of tea/coffee and grabbing a pastry/snack for breakfast/morning break. They had plenty of choice and a fancy tea machine the likes of which I've not seen before, to brew thr tea before it gets to the tea pot. A...lovely location along the pier and a clean and fresh interior, matching the welcoming and friendly staff.More

I headed straight here after whale watching. The latte was outstanding and just what I needed to cap off a wonderful experience. I had an almond croissant, also very fresh and tasty. Lovely place to sit in the sun on the wharf. They also have...a nice quiet place to sit in the back overlooking the water. They have an impressive offering of local honey!More

The baristas are on their A game. The scrumptious croissants are delectable and the view is great. We went on our way in to Big Sur and again before hitting the highway back south. Sea otters playing out back, seals playing out front, cool underwater...diving birds, boats, and people watching with all the sounds you’d expect in the bay. Love.More

First I must say that the ladies working there were courteous and helpful. However the coffee tasted weak and terrible. It was expensive too, one size (small) $2.95. If you want good coffee, go somewhere else.
