It was cold and breezy so we called in here. Originally we wanted something to eat but we arrived after breakfast service and before lunch, so ended up with just a coffee each. Pity as what we saw on people's plates looked appetising.

Had lunch there. Clam chowder in a bowl. Most enjoyable. Cute little café with lovely views of the bay. Great service, friendly and efficient staff.

Came for a quick coffee and brunch but stuck to the coffee after seeing one of the chefs exit the kitchen coughing and not covering his mouth! The coffee had obviously been sat around for a couple of hours and was bitter and burnt. Bad experience.

I have only great things to say about our stop at Cafe Nicole. The view of the harbor was beautiful. The eggs benedict was made to perfection and we had great service. It is a fairly small restaurant but that's part of it's charm!

When we sat down in this neat little cafe on the bay and were asked what we wanted to drink (the girl actually said "coffee?" and seemed amazed when I requested a drink list) the attitude started.

I stumbled upon this café while looking for a place to have breakfast. I came to the right place. This charming place is open only for breakfast and lunch. I ordered a breakfast plate and received a plateful of food. The server was very friendly and personable. She kept our coffee cups full and kept checking on us. My plate... More

Very busy little cafe. Friendly hard working staff that keep things moving. We were there on Sunday morning and long line up which shows its popular. Seems to be only one toilet ...which was clean. Free wifi. Food price ok. Nice view of water and some outside seating. Food very good.

Thank StephenCr0ss
