Great little coffee shop within walking distance. Sometimes the servers can be a bit gruff, but the place is charming and they have a great chai latte. In the evenings, they have live music by locals.

This place is pricey so I wouldn't recommend it for dinner unless it is a special occasion, but the bar is a great place to have a drink during Happy Hour. They have the best view on the peninsula.
