Went here on a Sunday while waiting for the ferry as it was close. They have some vegan options. The salad I had was good. More like a bar. Great view of the beach and harbor across the street, which you can enjoy if you are seating at or near the windows in front.

Having been told at another restaurant that there would be an hour wait, we went around the corner to try CC's. Had a great dinner, albeit the menu was varied. Probably the only place where I've ever had an Italian antipasto plate as an appetizer followed by a sashimi platter! Both were large enough to feed two and the sashimi,... More

I have been going here for years. Coffee is so tasty & pastries are so fresh. Many selections to choose from for lunch or dinner. Affordable gifts are also available. It's your one-stop shop.

Beer flights (try the mead), wine flights, sake flights, creative food choices including sushi, salads, apps, sandwiches and many other things. It's a cool vibe with indoor and outdoor seating. Definitely a must do when in Avalon.

Had a delicious lunch! Lots of vegetarian or vegan options! Beautiful salads, small plates, sandwiches, etc. I had the Mandarin salad with shrimp and it was light and healthful. Everyone was raving about the Roasted white bean and poblano soup! A nice diversion from all the Mexican, burger fare common on the island. Nice wine and beer selections, with coffee... More

By far the worst restaurant experience in my life. We should have left when the server told us they have no high-chairs. But we were enticed by the great location and the idea of being able to get beer, sushi and ice cream all in one place. The service was slow and mediocre. The quality of the food was somewhere...

We thought we would try a quick lunch at CC Gallagher since they remodeled it. Gone are all the retail stuff & paintings for sale. We ordered from the sushi & the lunch panini menu. Great spicy tuna roll and a chicken pesto panini. Very well made and presented.

We came here for just a beer. They have several on tap. We saw people eating wonderful looking burgers. We will do that next time.

A strange combination of foods: coffee and smoothies, next to the sushi operation, and then upscale home decor and souvenirs for sale, all within the same renovated bank building. Coffee drinks seemed overpriced, but they were tasty and certainly not from a fast food chain.
