Best coffee in town.

Grab a cuppa java and a pastry and people watch. It's a busy place. Everyone is friendly there. We go often.

This was highly recommended as a breakfast place and they clearly have a loyal following. The food was good but I wouldn't go out of my way to go again. If I was downtown and looking for a quick meal, this is a good place to go. Or, if you enjoy sitting outside and watching people while you eat -... More

The nutella hot chocolate was delicious and the coffee was fresh. The cafe becomes crowded easily and no tables were available when we were there, so we took our snacks to-go. We will definitely return.

Stopped in for lunch while visiting Aiken. Both of us enjoyed 1/2 sandwich with salad. Loved my avocado BLT and hubby said his was good too. Salad greens very fresh. Also shared a choc brownie made with black beans. Yum! Dining area very small but noted folks going around back corner so there must be additional seating. Coffee smelled good... More

I really like their menu and the food. Unfortunately, the tables are too close together and their dining areas need an upgrade. Like the quirky staff.

Everthing is freshly made! When you first walk in there is only a few tables but there are more in the back. With art work for sale. Must have cash for art work or walk down the street to the local atm.

If you are in Aiken, stop by - love to get their quiche and crab bisque. A little cramped on the inside, but on a nice day the outdoor seating is a great break!

We stopped for coffee to go. They roast their own here, doing it in small batches to ensure freshness. We what they had; my only complaint is that both roasts they had brewed were lighter, and I tend to prefer medium to dark roasts. So a little more variety would have been even better.
