“Can be great -- or disappointing”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

The first time I had their Islander sandwich (eggs, cheese, plus "the works" on an English muffin) I thought, I've found my place. Also liked their gluten-free baked goods. But the last time I was there, the inside of the muffin was so overdone it was charred black, and some of the "works" were missing. What the hey? But I was already miles down the road. I suppose the disappointment was greater because they are usually better. Friendly customer service was not so great that day either... Just a fluke?

“Great Coffee”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Stop by for a cup of great coffee and a lemon bar. The baked goods is worth the trip. The sandwiches are quite substantial and the picnic tables welcome you to stay awhile and enjoy.

“I don't get why this place is so loved.”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Okay, it's very decent, but everything depends on a lot of shortbread base, which is very dry. Also, the baked goods are expensive even by Island standards. I like it better than some of the other pie purveyors, but that distinctive dry taste is just not my thing.
