I've lived in Italy. I know great gelato. This is great gelato! Is it as good as what you'll find at the gelateria next to the Parthenon? No. That will never happen outside of Rome, but this is excellent gelato! Fast friendly service, too. :D Aside from that, you walk in and the scent of the coffee hits you in... More

As far as quality and service very over rated. I frequent multiple times. Very disappointing to pay for hot coffee and get lukewarm or cold coffee 😖. This has happened numerous times. The cappuccino is foamy. Improperly foamed beverage resembling beaten egg whites. It really depends who prepares. Some baristas seem not properly trained in preparing and customer service. All...

Stopped here several times during our stay in Port A! Great little coffee shop with local artists work in the walls. Comfy chairs, tables. Little alcove for privacy for those with computers. A few Adirondack chairs outside. Coffee, tea, lite fare lunch. Nice change from the usual chain coffee shops. Staff young and friendly

The gelato is very thick and rich. Lots of flavors to choose from, plus you get a sample taste prior to purchasing. Their coffee is strong and flavorful, nice and fresh.

This is a great place to have a cup of coffee after a meal. Also a nice place to just kick back and relax. Internet access is fast.

Good coffee, helpful barista behind the counter, and atmosphere was great! We enjoyed the multiple paintings from what appeared to be local artists on display throughout the shop. Music just right, and WiFi worked well also. The Peruvian and Honduran coffee were pretty good...the barista (girl) did a good job of answering questions, and helpful. She also when no clients...

We didn't order coffee, but the gelato was great, very creamy with good flavors. My favorite was Mexican cocoa.

Best sandwiches and gelato on the island! And a nice place to have coffee and croissants for breakfast. This is a good place to learn what's going on on the island and to find things to do.
