These folks have a good variety of lunch and snack foods. Lots of cookies, coffee cake, pannini, scones, fritata, and usually a pasta or rice dish for lunch. I hadn't eaten here in a while, but found it to still be good.

I wasn't expecting anything special when I stopped for coffee. My nose picked up on the fact that I was someplace extra special before I could even focus on the counter. The baked goods smelled fantastic, and there were many options. I couldn't resist the...More

One of our island favorite spots... usually can't decide. . So we get one of each nummy items. Love the chili, or soup, or frittata, or baked french toast. Eat there or take to go. We also like that he has gluten free items.
