Great place for having a coffee and/or breakfast. Their granola was delicious and they serve their own roasted coffee of high quality!

Wonderful cafe and ambiance. Known for great coffee but had great lunch. Had California panini that came with spinach side salad. Open air seating where you can people watch. Order at the counter them find a table where they serve you. Highly recommend!

Just up the street from our hotel but many times better than their free breakfast. Excellent coffee, some tasty treats, pleasant service, and relaxed outdoor seating. Very nice.

The egg and ham croissant is beautiful. The coffee is great. The setting is ace and lots of cute dogs are often in there. The smoothies are fairly overpriced but taste good. Highly recommend this place for breakfast and coffee.
