Cappuccino/Latte Tea
from delicious lattes to amazing loose leaf teas, we have it all. Dozens of flavors to mix & match, soy milk, whole milk, two percent, & skim endless possibilities. Each drink is made to order so freshness is guaranteed! If you can imagine it, we can probably make it, just ask!
Straight from the bronx our bagel, our bagels are truly scrumptious. We have plain. "Everything". Blueberry seasonal, multigrain, & cinnamon raisin. Toasted or not, your choice, & don't forget your cream cheese, real butter, peanut butter, butella or jam. Whatever your preference, we've got you covered for a quick breakfast or lunch fix.
Our muffins are baked fresh each morning & we rotate the cast of characters daily. But rest assured, one of them will be calling your name. Double chocolate. Lemon poppy, cranberry nut and, of course, blueberry are old friends but something new is always popping out of our oven. Don't miss it.
We're known for our fresh-baked pastries & you can be sure we have a warm, flaky little something for you to call our own. Scones, strudels, croissants, & cookies fill our bakery case & our cupcakes & whoopie pies are "well kept secrets" on the lake... for now!
Our waffles are made fresh to order & taste just like your mom's, minus the questions about homework. Top it off w/ fresh fruit, whipped cream, maple syrup, or all of the above. No judgement here! Unless, maybe, you bring your mom along... oh, please do!
A scone is a crusty british quick-break. Ours are baked daily & if you've never had one, it's a satisfying little ditty. Just a bit crumbly, but oh so special. Best sliced & smothered w/ jam & butter or any of the usual spreadables. Just the sort of snack a lad or a lassie might take any time of day w/ a spot of tea, but remember, pinkies up!
Breakfast Sandwiches
Why get a fast-food-drive-thru breakfast sandwich, when you can have better-than-homemade-bacon-sausage-or ham experience on a bagel? Add some eggs & melted cheese & you have an amazing breakfast to sit down & enjoy or take on the go. If bagel aren't your thing, we have delicious whole wheat wraps.
Needs a quick, light lunch on the fly? Our salads are topped w/ feta cheese, dried fruit & nuts, & drizzled w/ zesty balsamic vinaigrette. They're fresh, satisfying & simply delicious. Ask for one as a side & add the golden brown panini of your choice.
our quiche is made in house, but it's truly out of this world & baked fresh daily. yes, there's universal appeal here! Whether you enjoy meat in your quiche, or prefer to stick to the veggies, we have plenty of options. If you have something strange in mind? We're interested.. & who knows, it could be the next quiche of the week!
When lunch time comes around, it's back to the coffee house for round # 2. the chicken pesto is a clear favorite, but they al pack a punch. Right in the breadbasket! Toasty & hot off the grill these sandwiches are a first round knock-out. Ding-dong-ding!

A quaint, clean coffee shop that is perfect for a quick bite, snack, and great drinks. Service was fast and friendly. Offered options for coffee drinks not even on the board. Coffee is fresh and not over-roasted; good, medium blend with a smooth finish. Muffins,...More

Good food, good service right along the way. Made a stop here for breakfast along our way. Would stop again on our way back if we need to.

We stopped by for a late breakfast during a mid-week visit. The coffee was good and the tea was much better than we could get at the motel, but all in all the visit was mediocre. Half of the staff was great, and the other...More

We used to enjoy it here when we came every summer. It’s been a year since we’ve been and we’re disappointed. If you are used to good healthy smoothies, do not pay the $5 for theirs. It’s more of a watery slushy. And the muffins...More

Okay place. Overpriced. Def priced for tourists and not locals. Staff aren’t always the friendliest people, but it’s a nice little shop if you’re looking for WiFi

I've been visiting this place whenever I'm in the area as I love the location and the coffee is good. The place was recently renovated, so it is much smaller than my last visit (which may have been 7 years ago). I enjoyed the spinach...More

We happen to accidently choose a "health food" store for breakfast. We ended up here. Not a huge menu, but had a bagel (Lenders), sausage pattie and egg sandwich. Was pretty good, as was their coffee. Not a big place inside, WiFi, and a door...More
