Nice selection of baked goods, teas and coffees. Ideally located to people watch the Friday harbor ferry foot traffic. Sheltered and sunny tables with chill vibe making this a lovely spot to relax.

Great harbor views. Oatmeal was outstanding. Coffee was surprisingly lackluster. Staff was friendly.
