Great wifi speeds that don't buckle under pressure.... a methodical way of making coffee that is very consistent. They've got one corner with a sofa and two lounge chairs that are great for work/chillin ... I think they need a couple more of these. My fav items are the small chicken salad ( plenty to fill you up ) ...... More

This is a cafe that caters to both locals and visitors. There location near the ferry makes them a good choice while waiting for a ferry, but you'll also find lots of locals there. That's because their really friendly and their food is yummy!

We had coffee and a lite breakfast here in July 2014. Very nice environment and the service was fast and friendly. If they have their sea salt caramels, make sure you get some. They are soo good!!!

The coffee was pretty good (mocha) but the breakfast sandwich I ordered was still cold in the middle.

Finding places open this time of year can be challenging. Fortunately this was. It would of been nice if they had the breakfast menu on display somewhere. Only after we ordered did I find a menu.

Great chicken Caesar salad and sandwiches along with friendly staff. We ate outside to get a view of the harbor and managed to get a half view on the last table. We appreciated nice and friendly staff.

Functional and had wifi and plenty of tables. Food was acceptable but not much to speak of. Really the main attraction was its location and hours.
