We serve espresso, tea, cold-pressed juices, smoothies & vegetarian bites for breakfast, lunch or dinner along with craft beers, ciders and wine. Some tasty, healthy treats...that are quick to grab and go. If you are not in a rush, stay a while and chill on the deck watching the river pass while surfing the internet. Pura vida.
