It takes soooo little to make a happy customer....even a warm hello would suffice....but after staying a week at Diamond Head and wondering what this cute place was like, my husband and I finallyyyy stopped in to check it out for a coffee to go! Wow...a lady that we believe to be the owner with shortish curly hair passes us... More

One of my FAVE places on FMB. The atmosphere, staff, vegan friendly lattes & live music are the perfect part of a day at the beach!

Stopped for a coffee and a bite and enjoyed the musician in the courtyard while waiting for bagel! Great surprise as it was 9:00 am! Truly a fun way to start the day! Great coffee and island atmosphere and a great place to visit. Will go again

Stopped in quick for bite on my way out of town. I ordered a large cappuccino and the McGregor. For the most part, I enjoyed what I ordered. I do want to make mention of the quality of the sausage patty. It was gross... The owner should get with their food representative and really look at other sausage patty options.... More

Love the food! Amazing! Parking is limited. There is always a line because the food is very good. Waffles are the specialty but they also have a lot of bagel choices. Great way to start your day!

We try to visit this place every year we come back to the beach. This is about the only place to get a hot latte on the island. I would highly recommend it. The only thing I would ask of the owners is to sell a medium size coffee :)

Loves this hidden gem! You can't see from the ocean, but look from the street and you will find this. The bagels are fresh and delish! There is inside and outside seating (more outside ones). The workers are nice and friendly and there is a lot of yummy options on the menu. I went there 3 out of 5 days.

This place is an awesome break from the tourist feeling of the whole island. Brought the whole family here and there is amazing hidden outside seating. The staff is very friendly and made the whole family with a 2 year old feel welcome. Coffee is excellent. Real neat experience and will definitely be back to visit!!

A delightful find in Ft Myers beach. Right on the main strip (estero) and well worth the trip. I had the waffle with whipped cream, banana and mango jam (on the side). My daughter had the 'green peace' (avocado, provolone, sprouts, tomato and cream cheese) on an everything bagel. The bagel is steamed which made it moist and tasty. My... More
