Stopped by for a quick snack one afternoon, very nice selection of baked goods, the girl on the counter was very patient while I made up my mind.

This is one of the most relaxing places in Beaufort. It is a proud woman business!!! Details are fantastic. The coffee is delicious and the gelato is perfect for the little bambino. Well, also for the big bambino. Enjoy a cup and watch the tourists.

The only thing that stopped this place from being excellent was the price point, do not get me wrong it was very good food. They are cheaper places that people might choose because of the price, but if you want a step up then you...More

We stopped here for coffees on a Saturday morning. I ordered a mocha and I can't remember what my boyfriend ordered but they were both good. We also got a slice of coffee cake to share and that was very good as well. The place...More

Coffees okay; if they make a speacial prep--much better. Quiche's okay; seasoned lightly. German-choc bars a good taste but too hard. Breakfast sammies okay. Will try again. Pleasant staff and a cool java hang out on the waterfront.

What they make is excellent! The Southern biscuits, homemade, fabulous. Very friendly and helpful staff. Loved being on the porch with view of the waterfront park and water!

I don't believe they do....and not necessary. Very casual; just order at the counter and help yourself to seating inside, on porch. or in the Riverfront Park.
