We were looking for quaint local coffee shop to enjoy a coffee and latte. It really missed the mark. Latte was so so nothing to return for. The atmosphere was terrible. Table tops were dirty one of servers behind counter was busy looking at the...More

So another stop on the trip down memory lane while visiting Annapolis, the City Dock Café. I used to be a regular here (admittedly 20 years ago) so I was happy to see it still around. I was, however, a little suspicious as to why...More

Came in for a coffee and brownie. Staff were lovely but somehow the coffee came out green and tasted awful. A second try with the staff yielded a worse product. Family felt unwell afterwards.

We stopped in for afternoon coffee and a snack on our recent day-trip to Annapolis because the outdoor tables by the dock looked so inviting and the signs advertising pastries & scones had attracted us earlier when passing by. There were no outdoor seats available...More

This place is such a welcome relief to Starbucks, with real personality and better coffee. Prices are fair, service is good, and coffee and chai latte were first class. Just exactly what we needed. Will make it one of our regular haunts.

Good selection and quality of coffees. I was not too excited about the pastry selection or quality. There are other coffee shops in the area with better choices.

This small coffee shop on City Dock is a favorite among locals for their solid and complex brews but don't overlook the delicious homemade muffins, scones and pastries with flavors that rotate daily.

Laid back bar atmosphere, upstairs is usually quiet and open and kid friendly but not downstairs. The fish and chips are excellent, best around, and reasonably priced. Fun neighborhood bar
