We always enjoy our visit to Bridgehead's Coffeeehouse- we are never disappointed with the excellent coffee, breakfast sandwiches and a wide variety of baked goods. We enjoy the informal atmosphere, newspapers and when the weather permits, eating on the patio-always a winner!!

My Americano was very good; I also liked the cranberry scone I had. The space is pleasant, and the service is competent and very friendly. Don't know what the meals are like here, but for coffee or tea it is very good.
