The scones were delicious and the pumpkin donut nearly melted in my mouth. The staff was very jolly and friendly. So glad they open early so I can stop on my way out of town in the morning!

Our staff is very attentive to the specifics of making cappuccinos and we prolong the training of that specific drink because it can be a bit tricky. We're so sorry your drink did not meet your expectations. Our prices are competitive with other coffee shops...More
