Setting// large old home, tons of charm, local artwork and a few cobwebs. Lots of seating: tables, sofas, arm chairs, etc. Mostly college age people, but middle aged folks were pecking away on their iPads too.

Service// friendly, agreeable, helpful staff with pleasant demeanors.

Food & coffee// I had an almond joy coffee and it was light on flavor but brewed well. He had a grasshopper and said, "it's way better than Starbucks."

The best part// They serve sandwiches and beer too, which is a nice change from the pastries-only menu of most coffee houses.

They have a quaint old house feel in their coffee house. The coffee is good and so is the food. The offerings are simple yet unique in their own way. Special Events stand out there, and it is a good meeting house for groups that like a more artsy feel.

Met a friend for breakfast, she had an amazing egg dish. I just had coffee but it was wonderful. Lovely little place. There were also a lot of electrical outlets to plug various things in to!

A great place to meet a friend, study, or just enjoy a cup. They roast their coffee in-house, and it's the best in town. Good food, too, from a couple of local places.

This is a must-see coffee shop in Lexington. It offers a quaint atmosphere filled with a variety of types of people, i.e. students, business people, artsy-types, etc. It has large tables upstairs where people can hang out, study, or play games. There's also an open-mic night with local talent. They have great salads, which is the only food I've tried, and offer bottomless coffee refills. Good coffee. There is also indoor and outdoor seating. If an ordinary chair is too unwelcoming, you can take advantage of the large couches placed throughout the shop.
