“Just get a drink and use the wifi”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

The wifi is excellent here. Unfortunately that's about it. The trouble is it's not sure what it is. It's half restaurant and half shop. Would never come here to eat but it's worth stopping by to get some refreshments before heading off to alcatraz.

“If this cafe wasn't by the landing stage it would go broke!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Probably the low-lite of our recent USA tour of three cities.
We walked from our hotel down to the Landing stage looking for a cafe, the obviously better ones were full so we carried on and eventually hit the Alcatraz Pier where our eyes lit up to see a cafe.
Big disappointment, vast sums charged for microwaved rubbish. Staff anything but polite. Served on paper plates, lacked taste. Not impressed.It is alomost as if they take the view of we have you here so we'll have your money or you will go hungry.
Amazing that when you visit the island they wax lyrically about the standards of food the inmates receive, clealry visitors are rated (in the cafe only) lower than inmates were on the Island.
