We ordered two Venti lattes; $4.95 each before tax. Good coffee but a little pricey compared to other coffee shops and chains. We also ordered a snickers gelato in a cone which tasted great! We did however want to change our gelato order from a cone to a cup and one of the baristas was very abrupt about it. It seemed that refunding the $0.75 difference was more than she was prepared to deal with. My wife actually decided she was rude. We are constantly amazed by abrupt (rude) servers who appear to think that satisfied customers are unimportant to business success!

Another place in Port Aransas we will come back to again!
There were 7 in our group, & we each got a different flavor gelato.
Everyone was bragging that their flavor was the best.
There was also a band playing while we were there that we enjoyed listening to.
Would like to go in & try a coffee drink next time. Be sure you include this place on your next visit to Port Aransas.

We visited twice while staying on Port Aransas. Kids loved the gelato - tried six different flavors in two days. Adults enjoyed all the coffee choices, both hot and cold. My favorite was the "Big Train," a coffee or milk based drink with different added flavors and other diet-busting goodness. Atmosphere was great - table seating, some over-sized lounge chairs that kids loved climbing on, a few side rooms for a quieter setting, music on Friday and Saturday nights. The owner was there on the second day. He was a really personable guy with a tiny little one of his own. We will definitely be back on our next visit.

We went here cause of all the positive reviews and the hope of a good coffee. Nope, that didn't happen. Got one of my favorite drinks of cold brew coffee and I'm not sure what it was. The girls behind the counter weren't really the types that know good coffee so it's not that kinda shop. It's cute on the inside, but didn't feel like we were on the island. I'll pass next time we are in town and find my coffee elsewhere.
