Have been here many times on our visits to the Mt. The coffee is always good and the breakfasts excellent. Quick, friendly service. A relaxed vibe in a great location. The Raw Stack and the Pancakes are good choices.

Came here after climbing the mount - was a nice little cafe!!! Just a shame as they bought out all the drinks and then 5 minutes later bought out the last one. Good views and the clean bakery goods looked yum!

Highly recommend this cafe if you enjoy a good iced coffee (without cream). I've had several here plus hot coffees and both are always reliably excellent.
