Great coffee and specialty coffee drinks and teas. Take it to go and sip in the relaxing seating area. Return in the evening for a serving of gelato.

The best coffee on the island. Lots of choices. Some snacks and breakfast items are tasty as well. Friendly staff but holidays are busy. Plan on island time. Nice area to take a break. They were closed this am due to the weather.

We ordered bagels and coffee. The bagels they just pulled out of sack and we had to warm it up ourselves in their toasters. I ordered an iced coffee but small cup was completely full of ice so not much coffee in there.
