Well, the coffee is good. The soup's that I've had were sort of okay but bland. During the warm season the bayside spot is the place to go, or on the deck of the main shop. In the winter only the main shop is open. It's nice a cozy with two rooms available for seating.

Both the year round location, and the seasonal spot by the bay are so great. The owners are just awesome, and the quality is fantastic. My kids love the chocolate moose that they draw on the hot chocolates :)

Everyone is treated as family. Owners spend time to answer questions - where to go, what about. Never rushed. Good value for the dollar.
