After several days on the trail from Pittsburgh to D.C., i was THRILLED to see Desert Rose offered expresso beverages. We cycled into town late in the afternoon, Desert Rose had apparently just closed..we tried the door, it was locked and noticed the closing time had just passed. We walked across the street and the gal in the cafe opened the door and cheerfully invited us to come back inside. We went back and she was more than happy to make whatever we wanted. All i wanted was an iced-latte, since i hadn't had an espresso drink in 3 days. (reg coffee just doesn't cut it) She made a 16oz iced latte with a half-shot caramel for $2.32 (that included the tax) ! I was so happy--she made my day ! !! Because of her opening up, when she was technically 'closed", i just had to get on trip advisor to give her an excellent rating b/c of her above and beyond attitude--very refreshing. Next time we cycle this route, i will definitely make this stop--earlier, before closing time...and will plan to have my lunch there as well.
