This place is promoted as great for both coffee/cappucino/espresso/lattes and ice cream. Maybe the ice cream is good --it's homemade-- but the coffee is really bad. I even came back a second time because I thought that perhaps my latte was too milky so I'd...More

My husband and I just happened upon this cute, beachy shop while taking a walk near our hotel. We consider ourselves "coffee snobs" and were delighted to find high quality lattes and espresso. We liked it so much, that we ended up going back several...More

This place is located in a small strip mall by Captain Curts. The staff here are extremely friendly and the atmosphere shows off it's charming, quaint little shop by the beach. Walked here every morning for coffee while vacationing and highly recommend it!

How can you go wrong with ice cream... this place continues the great small shop ice cream tradition. Convenient location and wonderful shakes also.

Description
This old fashioned, family owned coffee and ice cream shop is located in Captain Curt's Village a few hundred yards south of the Stickney point (south bridge). It is beside the bike and kayak rental shop. They are super friendly and have a gourmet coffee bar, 24 flavors of hand churned, homemade ice cream. It is my favorite local coffee shop! I've never left disappointed.
