I came here twice during my recent short trip to St. John's to pick up coffee and a quick breakfast. It's a quirkly little place conveniently located right behind the Sheraton hotel I was staying at, and the coffee here is far superior to hotel coffee! It's also right on the way to the path to Signal Hill, so you could grab some snacks before heading out on a walk. They had a wide array of freshly made grab and go options. The yogurt granola parfait was so good I had it both times I went. Lovely little shop, wish I could have stayed and enjoyed my coffee there but I had to run back to my conference.

Stayed down the street from this place, or should I say up the street since it's the signal hill area. Yummy coffee! Had the new menu item; the smoked salmon bagel. The bagel, smoked salmon, cream cheese and veg were quite delicious. The staff is just as wonderful. Cool place with live music some days.

Stopped off for a quick breakfast at this distinctly cool place - luckily they still let me in despite my advanced age and grey, (but still hipster I like to think) beard)!
Great coffee and a nice salmon bagel quickly served + free internet available - what more do you need on a Sunday morning?

We ordered from a friendly young man. The coffee was really nice. The desserts were fairly fresh for a Wednesday afternoon. The lemonade was delicious. The picnic tables outside were great. We sat and people watched and RechargeD at the Battery!
Well done. You guys are smart business people.
You even have a water bowl and dog treats for your canines.

Stopped in for breakfast. Had the bagel with salmon and cream cheese. Very generous amount of salmon. Scones are yummy. Would recommend.
