    The tuna melt is superb. Never had one like this before. Served open faced on your choice of bread. No mayo but peppers and olive oil I believe. Highly recommended but hard to get in on a weekend AM.

    Great location, gluten free muffins, and one of the few coffee shops that has coconut milk instead of soy or dairy milk. Highly recommend this place!

    Victorian house I'd celebrate any occasion in, best coffee beans in SD with great pie and breakfast options near Swamis before/after surfing.

    The toasted coffee almond tea is the BEST! Purchase a bag, take it home, and make amazing tea lattes, hot or cold, it's all good!

    Service has become somewhat lousy but this is one of the only places I've found that sells 100% Kona coffee beans and 100% Jamacian coffee beans. They also sell beans from countires that are cheaper.

    Really great place. Make sure you make time because there's eye candy everywhere and most of it is by local artists.

    Coffee is crap and pricey but it's where the attractive people go. I go to mozy for coffee and they have soy milk to add for free. I go to pannikin to fall in love.

    No wifi makes it a good reading/writing spot. Good tuna melt and all the muffins are good too!

    The quiche is awesome. Tell them to hold the cheese they melt on good without the extra calories...

    No Internet. Good for people watching, writing or the like. Coffee is just ok. Staff is a little snobby. Don't go on the weekend unless you want to wait in line.
