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.

Our iced coffees came up immediately and were smooth and full flavored. Pastries looked fresh but we didn't try this visit. Very friendly server.

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.

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

Wonderful coffee shop at the end of the Annapolis City Dock. Terrific scones with flavors that change with the calendar. Great setting and a popular place in town. Right around the corner from the Naval Academy. Worth a visit.

The staff is very snooty. If you're not in their club they treat you with disdain. The food, coffee etc. is excellent however.
