Thanks for a lovely visit on a foggy morning. This was a great place for the teens to enjoy some coffee while the adults sat to chat. Would definitely come again. Baked goods were tasty too!

Delighted to find espresso in York Beach!! Right next to the Wild Kingdom. Nice outdoor patio & a few tables inside. Clean, clean clean & shining aluminium tables & chairs. Refreshing for this historic area! Sweet and friendly waitress, very welcoming and helpful. She was great. I had a bacon egg and cheese on a bagel & my husband had... More

Walked in for breakfast and was greeted by a happy, polite gentleman. He had a lot of workers prepping for the day. They have all types of coffee and drinks. Ample amounts of assorted pastries, muffins, cinnamon rolls and frittatas. You can sit outside or in. Very casual.

We were looking forward to some good coffee & eats here, but unfortunately was disappointed with both. The latte was nominal, needed sugar (which I don't normally add) to make it tolerable, and the Eggs Benedict rather tasteless.

Great location for this coffee shop which has now turned into a full service place for breakfast and lunch. However, you may want to think twice if you don't want to spend a long time getting a coffee. We ordered two medium cappuccinos, which took the barista 15 minutes to make (it wasn't busy at the time), and each cup... More

Went with my boyfriend during our weekend trip. The food was very good, staff was friendly, we ate outside in a cute little area which was very nice early in the morning. Overall it was pretty great & would definitely recommend!

Don't bother with any other place near short sands if you are looking for a good coffee selection. I had an iced mocha latte and they did a great job with it. Can't wait to go back and try something from their breakfast menu. The donuts and muffins looked amazing.

We needed a good, air conditioned coffee stop. It was 96 degrees the day we visited York. What a great little treasure this coffee shop is! Full page coffee menu. We had the frozen mocha and it was perfect for the HOT day! The bakery is fantastic. My friend had a honey bun that covered a salad plate! The Whoopie... More

We like to mix it half-and-half, Hawaiian hazelnut. So yummy! The owner sometimes gets a gab on and one can get irritated waiting ones turn. We are there for the coffee not the chitchat. And the bakery goodies, so good! They have a lunch menu also, but we have not tried that yet.

Very nice place. Breakfast was awesome and the service was very very good. My only regret was that it was'nt nice enough weather to eat out side.
