Coffee was good. I wouldn't say it is the best in town. They do have a competitor.. It is small and quaint. You could sit and read a book inside or outside. Nice views.

Nice place to spend an afternoon in. Can be a bit busy during Christmas and other high periods. They let you choose between a few diffrent types of drop coffee and the baked goods are nice.

We came here after it was recommended to us by a local resident. It was great! I had a salmon bagel, which was fresh and tasty. There was a laid-back and welcoming feeling and we did not feel rushed in any way to finish our food and drinks.

As well as wonderful coffee, the muffins and sandwiches are great -- and huge -- you'll need a refill! Regardless of when I go, it's always busy; you can fill your time waiting for your coffee admiring the gallery of photos of their to-go cups at well-known sites worldwide.
