“Nice place, nice coffee, nice staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Got a beautiful, delicious cortado. Nice and quite busy place, but got a table without any problems. Great coffee + friendly staff + free WiFi = will definitely come again.

“The service is excellent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We go there for coffee and tea. They are so good. The food is good too. The service is excellent. The tea is sometimes too much infused though.

“Tasty but Just a Tad Expensive for Drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

I will admit to being a Tea-Aholic...not sure what you would call it but when I get tea please leave the tea bag in so I can get more hot water? The drink portions are on the petite size.

Their food so tasty: Kale Salad - kale, red grapes, parmesan cheese, red bell pepper, sunflower seeds, dijon lemon-vinaigrette, crostini w/ basil aioli ($9.00)great combo of flavors! Even better ...BUT next time have them serve it as dessert if you are sharing... French Toast - hope’s bread, cranberry, sunflower seeds, almond crumbs topped with stone fruit compote ($9.00).

Great music, upbeat atmosphere, dress casually. Reminded me of a seaside resort.

“place for coffee lover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

I came here regularly for coffee on the weekends. I tried their regular latte and Chai Latte very often and the Chai Latte over ice is the best so far, very flavorful & tasty. Latte- I think its just average. We also always get the pour over with your selection of coffee beans. You get to try different beans from different region & countries. This is also their best drink.
This place is pretty cozy, semi self serve, except the brunch items- someone will bring you the plate; all other drinks and pastry, please pick it up at the counter yourself.
I tried their brunch on a Saturday my very first time with my mother, she liked it pretty much; but I think it's just average.
*can get very crowded, makes it hard to find a seat or a table
*nearby structure parking, free for 90 mins.
*people are pretty friendly, even though you don't see smile much on their faces.

“coffee, light lunch #1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Their brunch special of egg over easy on lightly spicy chopped chorizo machaca (a hash I guess) on julienned potatoes was fabulous. Some delicious greens too. Coffee of course was superb. Will try some of their teas next time. They looked intruguing. Great atmosphere, decor. Catty corner from castle green at raymond and green. Salads and pateries great too.
