Except for the fact the coffee is brewed locally, there is nothing special going for it. A favorite amongst locals, since our locals always support a local business.

In town for a few hours and stopped by for lunch. Not a big coffee drinker so cannot speak to the coffee menu. The food was excellent. Well made with fresh produce, delicious, and a nice healthy variety.

The Architecture and finishing is so raw, artistic, and comfortable. Always humming with people. The soy latte is so naturally sweet the 'creme ah' so rich- it's like having a mocha without the sugar and chocolate. Such a delightful experience

Highly addictive, organic coffee. The strongest cup o' joe in town. Fast service, awesome breakfast bun, and if you're lucky chocolate sprinkles a top of your steamed cream latte.

Best dark roast coffee in the province. Some may find it a bit strong but thats just cause your used to the wimpy city medium blends. Strap on and get after life buddy!
