Homemade soup sandwiches and desserts. Close to cruise ship docks and we'll worth the wait. Take food back to your boat.

Coffee shop that has expanded to a bakery and a breakfast lunch shop. The owners are there everyday cooking all the dishes fresh. There is a fixed menu and also good daily specials. I live here and this is one of my favorite places.

We ate at Sweet Mermaids twice. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming. They have great quesadillas. We tried the veggie quesadill and the chicken quesadilla. They even made them extra fast so that we could cacth the bus to Totem Bight.

This was the only coffee place open during our week stay. We ordered coffee and a sweet roll, both were very good. A popular spot with locals. Saw several breakfast's that look delicious and the sandwiches are large and look good as well. Very nice little place and would definitely return.

Thank Bob D
