The Coffee Shop: God's Gift To Cyclists

Of course there will be some important things missing from a small island in the middle of a big ocean.  A top-notch European bakery/coffee shop (and sadly McDonald's and Burger King) is not one of them.  Every cyclist on this rock rejoices!

The shop sits in Antigua, a small "town" conveniently located in the middle of the island and on almost every bike route, and doesn't look like much from the outside, basically a terra cotta storefront with a plate-glass window displaying a fake multi-tiered wedding cake covered in dust, but inside, gastronomic paradise:

French-ish stuff

And every cyclist on this rock stops by:

"One of everything please"

A coffee soothes the wind-burned soul
As long as they keep producing these baked goods and pulling these espressos, they can neglect their store front as much as they want.
