Stopped in for coffee at the Java Moose. Ambience is not much, but the coffee and treats are excellent. Clean, accessible rest room as well.

Coffee was delicious, plus we paired it with our "World's Best Donuts" donuts. It was early morning and the view was amazing. We got their early, so it was great service for us. I could see it getting a little crowded when busy, but it was the middle of summer when we went. I would suggest for anyone who likes... More

Well, the coffee is good. The soup's that I've had were sort of okay but bland. During the warm season the bayside spot is the place to go, or on the deck of the main shop. In the winter only the main shop is open. It's nice a cozy with two rooms available for seating.

The owners are friendly and the coffee and chai latte were delicious. The macaroon cookies hit the spot.
