“As good as any chain....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Tucked in an alley-way, this clean and friendly cafe has delicious coffee (I'm picky!) and the nicest people. The cookies looked super good too but I had just eaten a brownie. I'd save your sweet-tooth for this place!!!

“Decent fast breakfast ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Grabbed breakfast here while waiting for the ferry. We had breakfast sandwiches, oatmeal with berries and a vanilla shake, tea in a pot and chai tea. Chai came in a big ceramic cup and the oatmeal was delish. Simple and yummy. They also had gluten free bread and the oatmeal was free of allergens. Order and pick up at the counter, ample seating inside and out on the deck when the sun is out. Yes you have to clear your own dishes and scrape your plates but we didn't mind. People are super friendly and helpful.

“Excellent place to write a postcard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

Chai was excellent - in an over-sized ceramic tea-cup. This was a wonderful place to have a seat, rad a paper, check email, write a post-card or have a chat. Nice atmosphere.

“Great service and food”

We had a one hour wait for a ferry connection to Orcas so we went here as it is close to the ferry terminal. Had a quick soup and sandwich lunch which was excellent!
