Fantastic, fresh gluten free, vegan treats, and definitely not just for vegans or gluten free eaters :) The almond biscotti were out of this world. Cute little spot as well, just steps from busy Cannery Row

One of the best pour over (and I am comparing to SF places such as ritual, four barrel, andy town...) with definitely the best pecan muffin i ever had!

What a hidden gem! Located in the walking trail between Wave Street and Cannery Row, we found a quaint little spot that served delicious pour over coffee and various teas. They also served gluten free treats that were fresh and delicious. The owner was very welcoming and the server was also very helpful in guiding us on what to order. No only did we get delicious coffee, tea, and treats but we also got a little tour of his studio. Lastly there is actually heated concrete seating that kept us warm while enjoying the serene atmosphere of the patio and fish pond. We will definitely stop by again the next time we visit Monterey.
