I met a friend here as it was halfway for each of us and easy to find. The service was good and the coffee up to par. It filled up with happy patrons while we were there.

We arrived in Taos too early to check in and so we decided to try this place out. LOVE! This is a quirky and surprising spot. From the pay it forward mentality to the absolutely top notch customer service - this place is a hidden gem. I noticed a box for free books, a basket of freebies and a fantastic... More
