In a review of Fins Coffee, Kristain Blair wrote:

An interesting fact about Fins is that it used to be a gas station called Beach City Gas Station. Over time they developed a coffee shop inside where the coffee was so good, people started to come just for a supreme cup of joe. The Gas station turned coffee and pastry shop is named after the owners love for classic cars and is located across the street from Marianne's Ice Cream on Ocean Street.

In addition to Fins excellent coffee, they also have locally baked goods from Heather’s Patisserie delivered fresh every morning. They tend to sell quickly so come earlier in the day if you want a fresh croissant or cinnamon bun. The pastries range from blueberry scones to a beautiful and generous slice of dark chocolate cake. The dining area is quite spacious with many car photos on the wall and surfboards on display. Board games are available as well as a piano open to the public. Once in a while they will feature a live band usually on a weekend.
