Arrived at about 9am, waiting for 15 minutes. My first time here. I’m so in love with the harbor view, just next door. Ordered bagels, my onion bagels is perfect. My harbor latte is amazing. The people are nice.

Great location on the harbor with no frills seating and harbor views. Listen to the seals bark and dogs beg for food from their owners! Even live music on the weekends.
