Grabbed quick breakfast here a couple of days while on the beach. Funky place, very pleasant and helpful staff. Decent menu and prices. Bagels tasted store bought, but muffins and croissants were great. Worth a stop. Hope new Starbucks doesn't steal their business.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. You get a lot of bang for your buck. The North Shore sandwich was amazingly delicious. If you get the combo, it comes with a very hearty fruit/granola plate that is a nutritious...More
