“Love the smell on roasting day”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Often buy their ground coffee.

I've never plunked down at any of their tables but there are always a lot of people, a lot of laptops, a lot of deep conversations going on.

Love their outdoor patio - on warmer days.

“local flavor and excellent coffee”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

This is listed in the local paper as one of the top 10 coffeehouses in the Twin Cities - that's what drew me to this place. It was delightful - from the unique sign suggesting that would-be burglars escape the dark side and apply for a job - to the neighborhood group arriving, dogs in tow, as if on parade. If you want to be a trendsetter in your blase crowd, take them to this place.

“Best place ever!”
Reviewed 16 June 2013 via mobile

I go everyday. Best people, best patio and best coffee! Hands down! Their cold press is amazing! The Courtney Speacial and Mexican Mochas are signature drinks and are fabulous. Since they roast all their own coffee beans, the coffee is always fresh and roasted to perfection.

“Employee fired, then given a party”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

The owner fired a really nice employee (Jeanie), said she was "moving on", then gave her a party. Not very nice. She didn't want to leave. He said they needed to make a "fresh start." It's really creepy to fire someone and then say they left of their own accord.
