Books, Bread, Caffeine & Cocktails

A quiet coffee haven in the morning, to a cozy, lively bar as the sun sets. At Shipwrecked, you'll always find the warmest sense of community and enjoy the simple pleasures that come from a shared love of delicious food, good books, and pleasant company.


Grab and go breakfasts during the week and a full breakfast menu on the weekend.
Every Saturday, we make fresh, homemade bagels from scratch and begin serving them right out of the oven at 9am.


Thoughtfully chosen wines, original cocktails, and nightly small plate specials
