“Truly fabulous coffeehouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

An amazing blend of the old and the new. On the one hand it is an "old fashioned" coffeehouse with comfortable chairs and a relaxed vibe that lends itself to conversation with friends and strangers. Or a quiet sit in the corner enjoying your morning brew and reading or admiring the award winning photography (thus the gallery part of the name).

On the other hand it is a completely 'of the moment' beverage purveyor. Fabulous coffee is offered 'pour over', french press, espresso, cold brew, etc. all made a skilled barista. You can have your milk as cream, 2%, fat free, soy, almond, etc. They have fine teas and hot chocolate created with their own process using locally sourced chocolate. And they also serve various pastry/snack-ish foods.

All together an amazing find - I'd give it 6 stars if I could.

“Comfortable, interesting art, and good coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

Very comfortable "old fashioned" coffee house. Nice artwork, atmosphere. Coffee was very good. Not yuppie/Starbucks not dunkin donuts. Rather, a nice feeling of being in someone's living room with good foo and coffee.
