We tried the French Toast and the Croque Madame and both were excellent. The service was great and the atmosphere was relaxed. We will be back for pastries soon!!

We bought a pastry to share at the counter after a large lunch in another restaurant and didn't want to specd the time for table service and the server/cashier was quite rude about letting us sit at one of their tables to eat it.

Great location and atmosphere. But it can be noisy. My favorite is the almond croissant and coffee. Weekend are a little crowded but weekdays no problem.

We loved this place! Our service was splendid and the food was great. We enjoyed eating outside with our dog at a lovely table (covered by a pretty blue and yellow tablecloth). Our omelets were melt-in-your-mouth wonderful. Although we didn't try them, the specials included chocolate as well as red velvet pancakes. And the bakery inside was awesome - cases... More

We are up a little early in order to visit Shelter Cove and the community Center at Shelter Cove.

We select a Chocolate Croissant – Delicious , freshly baked flaky and crispy... More

We enjoyed this cafe very much. They had some interesting items. Be aware that the potato pancakes are not latkes, but something else. I tried them and have to admit they were not thrilling to me. However, I would be glad to return and try other items. My wife's omelet was very good. The location had easy parking,near an inviting... More

We had our first breakfast here yesterday and it was fantastic! The coffee was good, our meals were excellent and fast, the service was great, and we got extra bakery items to take back to our condo to eat during the week. We'll definitely visit again before we head home! Yum!

We noted that this was No.1 rated coffee shop in Hilton Head Island and it turned up and met the challenge. The coffee is superb and has a great menu for breakfast. Superb range of croissants and cakes.
