“really good espresso and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

We had been in maine for about 7 days and could not find a good cup of espresso till we found Arabica coffee. Really nice employees and great atmosphere. Coffee was not bitter which is a big thing for us. Not very acidic anyway. They were not shocked at our 4 shot americana like most places that seem stunned by that much espresso in one cup. A true coffee shop. oh. a bit pricy but not bad.

“Great local coffee house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Was in Portland for two days and spent both mornings here. Great place to kick back or plug in and do some work over breakfast. The lattes were outstanding as were the bagels.

“Best coffee in Portland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

Freshest, most flavorful coffee in Portland. Caramel lattes are amazing, and not too sweet as in most places. Plus it's a nice place to hang out.

“Comfortable coffee shop with a relaxed local vibe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2012

Stopped by here while wandering around Portland for the first time and had a very enjoyable caffe caramel while relaxing by a sunny window. The staff here was both efficient and friendly and the crowd seemed to consist of mostly locals getting work done on their laptops. Overall it was a really nice place to step away from the touristy side of portland
