Coffee perfection! Nice way to start the day today. Ordered a cappuccino and a latte. Sat outside sipping our coffee looking at the ocean. Staff was pleasant. Coffee was delicious and the perfect temperature. So much better than Starbucks!

This place was awesome. The staff behind the counter was super friendly. My iced coffee was served quickly and with a smile. Definitely will be back!

Sorry. Don't understand other reviews. Went for coffee/breakfast. They fave perfected the art of selling a large cup of foam under the name cappuccino. Fruit at least a few days old. Grapes fermenting. Tables dirty. There are plenty of other places to go. Why bother?

We purchased and enjoyed our morning coffee here. They had a unique and excellent choice in pastries and breakfast selections. The Nutella filled pastry was excellent. Service was fast, it was a convenient location to the hotel.

First, they serve Peet's. Yum! Second, they serve the best ham and cheese croissants we've ever had. Great option for a quick breakfast.

We were in for a late dinner on a wedding weekend. Food and service were fantastic. We were drunk and loud and there were about 12 twelve of us but they dealt with our party like champs. Loved the Manhattans, lobster nachos, and the seafood tacos. Place sits right on the water so the views are nice too.
