Skip the Starbucks and get your next drink at City Dock. The coffee is so much better than that chain-store-stuff. And the local friendliness, books, and ambiance add to the experience.

Came in for a coffee and brownie. Staff were lovely but somehow the coffee came out green and tasted awful. A second try with the staff yielded a worse product. Family felt unwell afterwards.

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.

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.
