Love grabbing Pete's coffee here and maybe a snack. They had good looking salads, sandwiches, and much more. I even bought a cute Christmas decoration.

Wow - the pasties are excellent! We each ended up getting two because we couldn't decide! We also ate lunch at La Stada and our paninis were great too!

I had a delicious apple turnover; my husband had a breakfast burrito. Both of us enjoyed our choices and sat at an outdoor table which was very comfortable.

On a sunny day it is perfect to have a nice coffee on a terrace in the sun. That is what this place is offering. We ordered a cappuccino and were drinking it outside while watching a wedding.

Opens early, which is a blessing for those of us who need an early coffee fix. Open for lunch with very tasty Paninis. Has both indoor and outdoor seating

I love stopping by here for a cup of mocha after a walk along the coastal trail. Grab a cup of coffee from the friendly staff and enjoy it while sitting on a bench overlooking the bay.
