Amazing coffee and food. Perfect to grab a quick lunch with a friend to catch up. The atmosphere is always welcoming and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Great place to study or relax and read a nice book by their fireplace.

It's a nice place to grab a cup and relax. Casual atmosphere, tucked away in a corner of a small strip mall with a drive through. Honest note: I am not a coffee person. I'm told they serve very good coffee and lattes but I'm...More
