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.

This is a must-have for gelato (Italian ice cream) aficionados, as they do a collection of custom flavors that changes daily, and they are all great (I have tried dozens by now). Sip on a tea, coffee or other drink while you enjoy your frozen treat on the cozy oversized chairs inside or on the Adirondacks outside. You can also... More

Nice local atmosphere. Good quality. Average Starbucks type customer should be pleased. Got breakfast pastry plus grabbed a sandwich to take to the beach for lunch. Convenient and good quality.

Grabbed coffee after lunch and it was a quality experience. Nice service, great product selection and decent prices. Got iced mocha, smoothie and regular coffee. All excellent taste!! I highly recommend it.

We were impressed with their drink and food selection. We both ordered iced coffee with almond milk which was good, not great. Just be warned, it took 30 minutes of standing in line to get to place our order.

Not many places to get good coffee on the island and I think this is the best. Broad selection of drinks. They also serve pastries and gelato. Cozy table areas to read and chat. They also have roasted beans to sell and grind if you want to brew your own.
