Good coffee and fast...the only game in town if you are staying at the cottages! Nice looking baked goods and friendly service. They open at six and stay open fairly late in the evening.

I've been here a few times and the coffee has been consistently good. The pastries we tried (scone, cookie, quiche) were all good and the service was plenty fast. Seating was good, wifi was fast and for the younger crowd there is a Pokemon gym located at the shop. The location and views are also perfect.

You have to have time to kill and money to spend if get coffee here! The service is poor, the wait time is long, and the prices are high. The location and proximity to the beach and vacation properties keep this joke afloat. They have some fun trinkets and T-Shirts to buy. I am not a coffee snob but my... More

I really appreciate the early hours they are willing to do here. So many times I've been up in the wee hours desperate for coffee and they've always come through with a smile. They have excellent snacks and coffee. A cute little place conveniently located across from beach.

We stopped in here on our last day to pick up breakfast and realized what we had been missing! Good selection of breakfast sandwiches and pastries and everything was delicious!

Stopped for a coffee on the way back from the beach. Followed a large family, was thinking it would take forever just to get a large iced mocha. Lucky for us the family found seats and we was able to order pretty quick. The place was busy on a Saturday morning but they had a well-trained staff that was friendly... More

Food and drinks competitively priced and quickly and well made. Large selection of non dairy milks for espresso drinks, and large selection of breakfast foods, including oatmeal and pastries. Great seating area overlooking the ocean.

Great coffee and atmosphere! The girl who worked each morning was so nice. Seriously delicious coffee...didn't really try anything else unfortunately. Wish I could be there right now! It is right across the street from the beach and makes for a perfect morning while in PC!

We just wanted a good cup of coffee and a pastry for breakfast this fit the bill. Their Hazelnut cinnamon roll is to die for. We purchased to rolls but could have done with one between the two of us.
