Great Coffee

Coffee was excellent and the food fresh and satisfying. When you enter the establishment it is warm and welcoming and the sounds and smells enticing. Very much enjoyed my visits there - next time I come back to Chico I will definitely be back

a very eclectic and funky coffee shop in the downtown core that is a wonderful place to get to know this town and the odd types who inhabit it. Wonderful espressos and teas; table and couch seating; and easy for conversation, job interviewing, reading, or writing. The coffee doesn't get any better in Chico than here. And they sell their...

This place looks the part of a decent third-wave coffee shop - La Marzocco, brick walls etc. However when I went there the other day it was apparent that whoever was operating said-machine didn't have much of a clue. Temperature - wrong, microfoam - non-existent, taste - hugely disappointing, latte art, forget about it. Please learn how to pull a... More

As a business traveler I'm always interested in finding places that serve a good cup of coffee and have a good atmosphere to relax. I'm happy to say this place is both. It is certainly a step up in coffee quality and ambience from any of the generic coffee chain stores. Next time I'm in Chico, I'd be inclined to... More

Haven't been there for a little while but the coffee used to be the best in town with the original management. He sold it and started new places in Sacramento. Coffee was still good after but not quite as good. Worth a try and we'll go back soon.

The food is tasty, the wine and champagne are great, it's a great place for a date or a girls night. It's tiny and feels crowded even when it's not. The service is ok, not the best. The food is pricey but worth it.

Best place I know to sit and visit with a cup of beverage. Also many people come in to study and run their computers.

I go to this little coffee shop on 2nd Street as often as I can. It's more cozy than most other local coffee shops that try too hard to be chic. The Naked Lounge brews the coffee just right, making it the best coffee I have found in Chico.

Interesting, artsy place in downtown Chico with a unique atmosphere. If you don't like the corporatism of Starbucks than this place is ideal because it's the exact opposite. Coffee is a little expensive paid $2.17 for an in-house regular cup when I was there today. They have a solid Wi-Fi connection that you can get a free 3hr code to... More
