3 1/2 stars really

Decent coffee in a small town. I'm sure we are spoiled in that not many years ago there was a complete dearth of decent coffee made with pride anywhere outside the big cities. This is a nice, small space and the drinks were OK but not outstanding. Light food available too which was also... read more

We had delicious sandwiches and when I asked if they did iced tea, I was surprised to hear him say, "we can ice any of the teas on the board." Why can't more coffee... More

We also bought our sandwiches at Hava Java before heading off on an East Coast... More
