“First will be my last visit”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013

Stopped in this afternoon with my mother for a warm cup of coffee and pastry. One girl at the counter. The wait was unbelievable. Trying to show my mother I have patience, I waited and waited and waited. Felt so sorry for the one girl behind the counter. The coffee in the thermos containers was cold. Some were completely empty. I asked that our muffins be warmed. Waited and waited and waited while sipping our cold coffee. Finally went back up to the counter to check on our muffins. She got them out of the microwave. Took them back to our table and was so upset with the 1st bite. They were cold. I guess at one point they were in The microwave but til she finally got them out they were cold. $7 for 2 cups of cold coffee and 2 cold muffins. NEVER again!

“coffee shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Great place to meet a friend to talk and catch up on life events. They have nice sandwiches, salads, and coffee drinks or tea. It is also a place to just have a coffee and pastry. It is small so at the busy lunch hour you might have to wait a bit to be seated. They also have special music on some weekend nights.

“Coffee is good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013 via mobile

Coffee is good but food is mediocre. Ordered a pastry with my coffee and it was not fresh. Staff is not over friendly.
