“Wow! What pastries & Coffees”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

In addition to good breakfast 'stuff'', they have yummy sandwiches, soups and salads. A gathering spot for locals and tourists for early morning coffee.

“Worth the Stop”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Coffee and pasty stop for me. Have not tried their other selections. Pasty is great / coffee is OK but nothing special. Quaint and clean little shop right on main street with a nice view of the park and harbor.

“Good service, good product”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

It was very nice to find this on the main drag, a place to sit and share a sweet and a good cup of coffee. It seemed the young employees were invested in making our visit pleasant. They consulted each other for recommendations and our coffees were good and the pastry was heated and split. One inquired if we needed anything more and seemed assured when I said it was all good. The manager stopped by later and was visibly pleased when I complimented staff.. His summers are hectic and his falls are slow so he really needed to hear some good off-season report.

“Great little place!”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

While biking in the area, we heard that Johan's was a favorite spot for locals so we stopped in for coffee and donuts. The staff was very friendly and the donuts and coffee were excellent (and they don't skimp on the custard filling!) Glad we stopped for a break, and we'll do so again.
