Great local hotspot for coffee and a quick bite for breakfast or lunch. Eclectic, water view and both vegan and gluten free options. Lots of coffee choices. Fun place to stop!

This is a slightly funky coffee shop with good drip or other coffees made to order along with a few things to eat too. The furniture doesn't all match, the setting looks like the old hippie days of PT. It's a good experience and good...More
