Whether you need a caffeine fix in the morning, or an iced treat in the afternoon, you are never more than a few minutes away from your beverage.

Now, the upstairs rooms, Ferry Landing Suites, are available as vacation rentals, and the Doctor's Office Cafe serves up espresso, ice cream, pastries and lunch.
