This is an excellent coffee place that offers all sorts of drinks including delicious cold brews and drips as well as all the typical locally available options. The owner/manager is a very competent and amicable person. Safe bet in the area.

The coffee tastes very good and there are many different choices. The atmosphere is very nice and the place is decorated originally.

Well worth a visit for anyone interested in coffee. Tell the owner what you like and sit back and enjoy. Better still, no laptops allowed!

There is real attention to coffee here. It's often small batch, and there are a number of different types.
