This is the local coffee hang out place. Great for conversations, biz meetings, great coffee and pastries. Staff is really friendly and you can comfortably work here. You can also have reasonably priced beers!

We enjoyed a good cup off coffee while waiting for nearby shops to open and got to rub elbows with some of the younger crowd, most of whom were students at the local college. The devices were out and a sign proclaimed that if you gave them a like on Facebook you would get a 10% discount on your bill.... More

Best chai I've ever had! Great rotating beer & cider menu too. Gets pretty crowded, so if you're going there to work, get there early in the evening or morning to get a table.

I can't stop thinking about that delicious, warm, super soft tasty everything bagel. I honestly don't think I've ever had a bagel that delicious. Coffee was also delicious. Boyfriend loved his burrito, he scarfed it down quickly! Nice and clean. Nice interior. Comfy place to relax and eat and drink coffee. Enjoyed the window seat. Went back later in the... More

The atmosphere is very comfortable and social. We stopped in for some coffee after dinner and the employees were friendly and helpful. The latte and iced mocha were both very good. Definitely recommend stopping in. Also, if you arn't a coffee person you can grab a pint, which is pretty cool!

We stopped for some Lattes and breakfast. What a nice shop. Free Wi-Fi which was easy to access. Ample seating and we didn't wait too long for coffee or food. The menu is limited, but it is certainly in-line with other coffee shops (i.e. breakfast sandwich, bagels, scones and such. It came highly recommended and we would recommend to others... More

Love the idea of this place, beers and coffee. Great drinks. Great sandwiches too. But mostly a great place to hang out and drink.

The atmosphere was nice and relaxing, but a little dim inside in the morning. There was a lot of comfy seating and it seemed to be a good place to get some work done. Staff was friendly. Food was good--I tried the "Lox of Love". My espresso drink (cappuccino) was mediocre.
