Fantastic coffee. Not fast, but worth the wait. The young adult servers were happy & friendly. Older gentleman unnecessarily rude. Pastries/food fresh & tasty, slightly pricey. Tight fit, get coffee to-go unless you're there very early in AM. Not quiet.

I love this place! Not only is their coffee great and expertly prepared, they have lots of very tasty gluten free items for those among us who are gluten sensitive. Beautiful setting right on the water with lots of comfy chairs and places to sit.
