Off the ferry and straight to snug cove. Dog friendly patio. Great coffee. Good breakfast place with a large menu. I was later told they do great mochas.

Kitchen was closing when I arrived, but the case items were really good anyway. All restaurants were busy due to long weekend ferry traffic, but staff were super quick & friendly. The breakfast bagel is great - no crap ingredients!
