I fell in love with their Spring blend, this is such a cute place, you just want to sit there and relax. The honey bee latte was good as well as the maple cold brew coffee drink. If you love coffee you'll love this place.

We stopped off here after taking a cruise around the islands. It's a very comfortable place to hang out while sipping some quality caffeine. It also offer great bakery to go with, if you're hungry.
