Like a previous visitor, we have visited this establishment over the years. However, this year was mega disappointing. The place staff and one good good have deprecated. The once pleasant relaxed atmosphere and popularity appears to have diminished.

We enjoyed an excellent cappuccino and key lime pie here on a very blustery September morning. Friendly staff, and an attached bookshop - heaven for me!

The coffee was good but the staff especially what i thought was the owner or manager was very off putting, loud and not at all friendly. It is expensive for what it is. We then went into the bookshop and bought a book but had...More
