Even in the winter months there is something magical about a harbor view as you watch the boats glide in and out of port.  The Coffee Table Cafe at the Hy-Line Landing at 230 Ocean Street in Hyannis is a wonderful spot for breakfast, lunch or a quick cup of coffee. 

The Breakfast

Breakfast sandwiches are served on homemade breads and bagels and are beyond compare.  The self-serve coffee bar offers a selection of fresh brews to compliment the  baked goods.  Cinnamon rolls, coffee cakes, muffins, turnovers, danish, cakes, scones, and croissants are baked fresh daily.

The cafe atmosphere is pleasing and friendly and it is one of the cleanest establishments I have ever visited.  Relax and surf the net with their free Wi-Fi service. 

The Coffee

Don't miss out on the cafe's a "save-a-tree" coffee special.  Bring in a mug (any size) and  fill it with one of their coffees for only 99 cents.  Now that got my attention!  Make sure you pick up their coffee club card.  After purchasing nine hot or cold coffees, you receive one large hot or cold coffee and a pastry of your choice--free.

The Lunch & Bakery

As you enter, the aroma of fresh baked goods fills the air and that certainly doesn't hurt your appetite! The bakery & pastry shop in the cafe is taking orders daily for your holiday pies and baked goods needs. The luncheon menu boasts a selection of gourmet sandwiches featuring Boar's Head meats and cheeses, salads, and even box lunches to go.  For you vegetarians they serve the "Martha's Vineyard", a veggie wrap with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, roasted red peppers, feta cheese, black olives, artichoke hearts and your choice of dressing. 

The Coffee Table Cafe is a casual but elegant place to grab a bite whether or not you are heading to the islands.  Stop in and check it out, I guarantee you will return! welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
