“Confusing location but good coffee”
Review of Riptide Cafe

Riptide Cafe
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 June 2018

One of the town's highlights, Riptide Cafe; beautiful views, good coffee but slightly confusing location. If you enter off the main street level (not dockside) you'd understand the confusion. When you enter the business it shares a space with a local kayak tour operator. The tour operators greet you before the barista can see you, not a deal breaker but may be consider a divider in that space.

Service is great, very friendly and the coffee options are plentiful. Seating is split in/out, but again with the tour operator in the same space it's not coffee shop welcoming. Our recommendation is grab a cup and find a seat along the docks to soak in the beautiful views.

Newer coffee shop in town. On the waterfront, recently opened in serving coffee, lattes and other flavored beverages including baked goods and desserts. Large selection of drinks and baked goods on the menu. Good coffee, delicious baked goods and small seating area with a great view. If you looking for a good cup of flavored coffee with bake good at reasonable price, try it!

The coffee is always great (I especially love being given my coffee and steamed milk so I can get my proportions just the way I like em) and the service is GREAT!

I love their smoothies and snack. We stopped here before boarding the whale watching vessel. Great little crew working here.

The specialty coffees needs more coffee! Great service, served hot, hot coffee but it just seems to be missing the giant coffee flavor. Beautiful views of the harbor.
