Good coffee and Italian soda shop! Wifi was helpful and so was the staff who helped us decide on the best kayaking tour around the area! Thanks!

I was surprised to find a shop like this in Bryson. It's funky and artsy and more like what you find around a college campus. Didn't stay long enough to sample their menu, but they had a good single origin dark roast DECAF brewed up, which made me happy!

What a great find. I enjoyed a great chorizo sausage quiche and coffee. The quiche was delicious and substantial. The proprietor visited with customers and checked on meal satisfaction. The service and atmosphere were great. It's across the street from the Great Smoky Mountain RR Depot.

Stopped in for a cup of coffee after reading reviews here. Ordered a small Americano/Breve (12 oz) and it was 4.59! I might add it was perfect, very hot (I like my coffee very hot) and served promptly, but I was shocked at the cost. That is more than the famous chain that gets constant complaints due to price!

Really looking forward to going back for coffee and breakfast.

Seemed a little expensive at first, but know that the wraps are huge. I ordered a half and could have easily made due with a quarter...plenty... More
