My family visited 3 times during our Port A visit. There is a nice variety of coffee and gelato, as well as a few paninis. T-shirts and a few other items are available. The store is pretty large for a coffee shop. Ambience is quiet and dark.

Quick getaway from the holiday to get a little work done. Staff was friendly, they had for "here" cups but served ours in "to-go" cups....which we devoured, then loaded up on coffee"ish" desserts for the kids. Can you believe there was live music on Friday night? Believe it, entertainment that is family-friendly to compliment the gelato. Love Port A!

This is a wonderful place to stop by for a flavored coffee and breakfast croissant. I ordered the caffe mocha,and breakfast croissant. Both were delicious! If you are a lite eater you could share the breakfast croissant, its a good size. This shop was clean, friendly, and a great place to hang out and relax on a couch or two.... More

I'm amazed that the place isn't charging more for what they have, this is a busy little place and may take you a few minutes to get what you want but it is worth it and the staff has been great each time I have been. Great coffee shop!!!

Really nice coffee shop. Friendly staff and great ambience for a strip mall setting. Oh and don't skip the gelato. Nice selection of creams and the ones we tried were wonderful.

Extremely nice staff and great coffee. I had a latte, but couldn't resist a freshly baked scone. If you're in the area and want a unique, local, charismatic coffee shop--stop here. It seemed like they make everything with fresh ingredients which is unlike most places! Highly recommend!

For being in a strip mall, the interior ambience is very nice. Lots of space and well-decorated. I'm not sure if I caught them on an off day, but the wait was well over 20 minutes and the coffee was not worth the wait. Disappointing!

We visited 3 times while in Port A. Each time we savored our drinks. The chai Latte's and pumpkin spice latte, was so good. They have pastries, sandwiches, and gelato that is made fresh each day. We tried the strawberry and pumpkin spice gelato. They were both terrific. The strawberry was our fav. During high volume times, they are quite... More
