We walked over from the center of downtown Portsmouth NH, and stopped for a snack. The coffee is excellent, the staff friendly and efficient, and the view gorgeous. The baked goods looked wonderful, but I unfortunately resisted them (it was hard).

I stopped here for soup, coffee and dessert. It's a cute place, modern, with good food and GREAT views of the Portsmouth waterfront and bridge. I'd eat here just for the view, which I'm sure a lot of people do. The meal I had was very good, and the price was reasonable. Friendly service.

Good, not great cafe. First, the positives. Can't beat the ambience and view! It's on a hill by the bridge overlooking the water. Lovely! Also, very neat and tidy place. Gotta love the cleanliness. The coffee is really good too, which really should be high priority when reviewing a cafe.

Now, the negatives. Not much parking. There's a very limited menu with NO bagels and few baked goods. There are some hot offerings, breakfast sandwiches and breakfast pizza, but they are pre-made and we found the pizza, while ample in size, doughy, bland and not-so-fresh. Finally, it's very pricy, so expect to pay for the view.

Recommendation: enjoy the coffee and view, but bring your wallet and avoid the food.

Not a fan of the cakes,nether seem dry. Scones are good, muffins on dry side. Beautiful place to sit and watch the river. Parking is awkward

Stopped in for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast sandwiches were delicious and reasonably priced, coffee was excellent, and the view is fantastic. That afternoon on our way back to Portsmouth we stopped again and tried a few of the baked goods. They did not disappoint.
