The perfect choice for coffee by the sea. They have inside seating or take your brew to the sea. Great fresh pastries too. In addition to the great coffee the staff/owners are sincerely welcoming. It feels like you've come to a friend's home for a visit.

Visiting from the UK, we made two calls for coffee and cake. Each time the staff were cheery and helpful with information about the area and our travels. The coffee, in 'proper mugs' was delicious and the cakes fresh and home made. Today's was mango,coconut and walnut - what's not to love in the sunshine! Try it if you are... More

We only had coffee here but the pastries looked good. A very friendly welcome. Nice restroom for which you ask for a key. We sat in a covered doorway area but there was an outside table and inside seating. Most importantly the coffee was good. Would go back.

Kay's is good for coffee and morning tea but if you're looking for good breakfast fare I would likely head next door. Not meaning to take anything away from Kay's but for those with a morning appetite this place is not for you.

We love out cup of goodness at Kay's Coffee! The engineer out of place, sure designed a perfect spot for a stop off on our morning bike rides or walks. Relax, read, drink and eat the home-made goodies.

Quaint old style coffee house with hot/cold drinks and small selection of pastry. The staff is friendly and does a good job. Some coffee specialty drinks you won't see elsewhere. I had a brown sugar latte with my zucchini bread and sat in the patio looking at the ocean. Sublime. Free parking nearby.

Ideally placed near beach, so pleased to finally see a good coffee shop in this area. They have a good selection of cakes and drinks. Outside seating ideal for people with dogs or buggy's.

I took a walk down to the ocean and I head people laughing. Tucked away was a small coffee shop. I decided to check it out and it was great. Good Coffee and good company. I met visitors from other states visiting the beach area and I really had a good time. Its on my list. Come and enjoy, I... More

This place is new since we were last here a couple of years ago. We'd been walking on the beach and fancied a simple coffee before we headed off. Initially because of the little courtyard, we went in. Lovely, small place both inside and out. Great coffee and a lovely maple scone. Will definitely go back.

We just happened upon this cute cottage coffee shop after a walk on the beach. The shop is bright and spotless and they sell yummy fresh pastries to go with their perfect cup of coffee There is an adorable little patio to sit at or enjoy the cozy shop inside.
