“Great selection, good coffee, reasonable prices, relaxed seating areas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

It's nice to go some place other than a typical Starbucks or Coffee Bean for a coffee break and a snack. You self serve yourself from cabinets displaying a variety of choices; something sweeter to a basic fresh roll. They also have a few hot bakery related items that can be ordered and would be considered a light meal. Good natural lighting inside and a cute set off from the street exterior seating area. They have free parking in a small lot in back or there is metered street or a large rear metered parking lot. Nice employees that aren't caught up in the coffee chain mechanics of 1000 coffee drink variations to dole out. You'll enjoy yourself and probably become a regular!
