Nice cafe on the water. Fresh hot lunch and friendly staff. Right on the main drag and has a gelato bar as well. I would go back again.

Great setting (gorgeous views out back, looking over the water). Nice informal interior. Savoury food options looked nice but we were just here for a snack. Tasty pastries, but only ok coffee... I asked for a flat white but it wasn't really a flat white,...More

Be sure to order the tomato pie, then sit outdoors to eat it. The coffe is great and so are the sweets.

Comfortable atmosphere ruined by being understaffed. One woman was doing her best to serve dozens of people at once. They are a coffee house, dessert bar, sandwich shop and Gelato shop all in one. Food was delicious when it came. . Frappe needed something else...More

Thank you so much for your input. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed our food. In your opinion what should our frozen coffee have added? We take all our reviews very seriously and are currently working on this problem dealing with the staff.

During our short, two-day, visit to Beaufort, we stopped here twice, first for afternoon gelato and late at night for desert and coffee. Everything, gelato, desert and coffee were excellent, the staff is friendly, and the location is on the waterfront. We highly recommend it.

Very welcoming with an amazing view. The coffee is stellar as is the food that they offer. newspapers and magazines adorn the inside of this lovely coffee shop. Sitting on the patio looking into the waterfront is breathtaking.

Great coffee, pastries and food particularly the breakfast biscuits all to be enjoyed in a lovely coffee shop set on the spectacular Beaufort River.... BUT there's a price to pay. Service is horribly slow even by the South's laid back atmosphere . To boot the...More

I don't believe they do....and not necessary. Very casual; just order at the counter and help yourself to seating inside, on porch. or in the Riverfront Park.
