Not only do they serve the best coffee on the island, made with passion, but the atmosphere is chilled and relaxed in a gorgeous courtyard garden setting. The live music is icing on the cake! Don't miss it!

Beautiful and peaceful setting and wonderful live music. The singer has a beautiful voice that makes the cappuccino taste as double good. The service is very friendly and good.

I've visited this cafe almost everyday since I found it, the coffee is proper speciality light roasted coffee. People that are used to Starbucks would probably describe it as acidic because it actually has flavor notes! It is far superior to any other coffee I...More

When you step into our place, you'll want to whip your phone out to snap a picture. Which is great because our wifi will let you Instagram it immediately. Then you'll sit down, order a hearty breakfast to go along with a cup of coffee which we take much pride in making. On weekends we have live music in the AM. If you like, ask us about our beans or just have a friendly chat. We love either one.
