Excellent coffee bar with light breakfast goodies and very relaxed atmosphere and no internet which is a plus if you like to talk to living humans.

I stopped in here many times in August during a work trip to grab some breakfast on the go! A gentleman recommended to try the veggie breakfast burrito with bacon.

This place was a surprise. Looks fairly plain from the outside but the wraps and sandwiches are delicious.

Good grabs for the ferry. Both veggie and meaty options. Wish I had time to try a smoothie. Bummed they just ran out of the butternut squash wrap. Hummus wrap and Italian sandwich were excellent and reasonably priced.
