Visited a few times and enjoyed the espresso and BLT sandwiches with soup. Small, but quaint and great coffee. Definite must stop for coffee and quick meal.

A Shot in the Dark has been a favorite place to have coffee for many years. In addition to good coffee, the shop offers a variety of gifts and cards for all occasions. The shop is both comfortable for hanging a while as well as fast for a quick espresso to go. Staff is friendly and helpful.

We had drip coffee and it was good. The staff was super nice. We got to listen to "locals" gossip about crime and general family sass. It was funny.

Coffee's On is by far the best coffee shop around. The atmosphere inside is cute, the staff is always friendly and often remember the customers. Kids drinks are just the right temperature. Snacks to go with the drinks are good too, but the best part is the coffee. Not too strong, never burnt, nice and smooth. Not as highly priced... More
