I love swinging by to grab a coffee. Their feta and spinach croissant is the best breakfast. Its such a quaint shop to just sit and read a book or meet a friend.

Amazing coffee, we came in and ordered regular coffees with French vanilla flavoring and cream. The coffee is just not comparable to any coffee you can make at home. Amazing. Can't tell you about the food. Very nice barista too!

Outstanding service. It may be small, but the service and drinks were outstanding. There is a small enclosed courtyard at the rear of Rude Awakening that a great place to enjoy our beverages and good conversation. A must do!!

If you are sick and tired of St*rb*cks and other cookie cutter coffee chains, check out this little old style cafe. They don't make their own teas but the sundry coffees are fresh made and they have pastries and quality chocolates to chose from.
