Cozy and comfortable, with delicious drinks and a delightful assortment of baked goods, this was a lovely place to stop in while exploring Gloucester. And my goodness, I didn't know a grilled cheese sandwich could be worth raving about, but the one served here? Absolutely delicious! The staff was really friendly too. My only regret is that I didn't have... More

Spent some time walking the Main Street area in Gloucester and this was a comfortable spot when that mid-afternoon "sinking spell" hit. Just had some of their good coffee and watched the world go by. Obviously a place for locals as well as tourists. Hard to resist their homemade cookies, but we had eaten a big lunch!

This seems to be a nice sandwich bar with a friendly staff and wonderful ambiance. They need to explore different coffee suppliers, though. The espresso was way below the average expected quality: bitter-burned and acidic aftertaste. The coffee may not be so bad if you order a cappuccino or a latte.

On June 22, 2016, I was in Gloucester, MA for a Whale Watch with 7 Seas Whale Watch (fabulous-please see my review). Prior to the cruise, I asked the office staff where I could get a good cup of coffee and they recommended the Lone Gull Coffeehouse. It was only a 5 minute walk from the dock. It's a charming...

Pretty diverse selection. The smoothie choices are pretty unique. Didn't try the coffee today but there was a good crowd and all seemed to enjoy what they were having.

I stopped in for a quick breakfast today. There was a line when I got here, but it moved quickly and I got a seat easily. My breakfast sandwich was good and the staff was friendly. Nice little coffee shop!

I do not usually say this about a coffeehouse, but this shop had my favorite mocha latte ever! I loved it so much I came back the next day before leaving town, even though it was not in the direction of traveling home and I already had a five hour drive ahead of me! Delicious baked goods and great coffee!... More
