The menu here consists mainly of light fare and quick options like pastries, bagels, oatmeal, and smoothies. Additionally, they offer a tasty breakfast burrito, a breakfast sandwich, paninis, and filling salads for anyone seeking something a bit more hearty.

Waterfront offers a number of plant-based and gluten-free options, so it's a great choice for anyone following a specific diet. A few good vegetarian options include the Garden Veggie Bagel and a Mediterranean salad. Gluten-free diners can pick amongst a variety of fresh smoothies or a bowl of oatmeal topped with fresh berries.

They also serve espresso drinks and nitro cold brew.


This is a counter service establishment. It's never too busy, and thus, service is typically pretty quick.


There is not much seating here, however, there is a great view of City Hall. Take a seat, savor a cup of coffee, and enjoy the city vistas from the massive windows.
