A wonderful place for those needing gluten free baked goods and delicious foods like pizza, etc. The chicken pot pie is just perfect in the winter--flaky, buttery crust, warm and hearty. Specials of the day have been delicious savory items, too; breads taste great including...More

This place was amazing. A completely dedicated gluten free bakery. They had breakfast foods, cookies, pastry, coffee. I was in heaven. Indoor seating in the old port. Walking distance from the cruise terminal.

Went in for lunch. Food was so so. When I ordered something that was listed on blackboard outside, server didn't think they had any, but checked and said yes. Biggest problem - no air conditioning!
