This little cafe is part of the OSIO Movie Theater, but can be accessed from the street also. As a tourist this is highly recommended for a quick bite of good food at reasonable prices. There are coffee drinks, cookies & pastries, panini sandwiches & regular sandwiches,& wraps. This is high quality food heated when ordered with generous smiles. All... More

Located across from the Marriot, great spot to grab a quick bite and coffee. Lots of local charm and friendly staff. Only criticism would be breakfast was served a bit cold. Still glad we went overall.

Great Coffee From Local Gem "Acme". Great For Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Late Night. Works Cooperatively With The Adjoining Osio Theater. (Best Blueberry Scone I've Had.) Terrific Value Sandwiches For On SIte Or Take Away. Regulars Include An Early Morning Coffee Drinking Group Of Sicilian Bocce Players...(You Could Be In Trapani!) Try It...You Will Like It!

Baristas are professional and friendly.

We had a bit of a design in the frothy milk! Best blueberry scone (used to them being very hard and dry, this one was... More

I like the location, and how the place is organized, but is quite dark and the smell of popcorn can bother someone. Is right in the Osio cinema and that is awesome. If you are waiting for a movie or you just got out. I love the cinema there :-) Good place to study (upstairs there are comfortable places)

We stopped here for breakfast on a Sunday morning before heading out of town after a lovely 4 night get away. I believe the kitchen crew likes to sleep late (or attend early church) because they don’t serve breakfast/brunch until 9 am. The food was very tasty and the portions were large enough to share if you are not a... More

This little cafe is great and reminds me of neighborhood coffee shops in San Francisco and L.A. They have a little of something for everyone including beer! They now have a nice selection of beers on tap. We had the eggplant sandwhich which was excellent! Fresh, flavorful and delicious. They also have a nice selection of loose leaf teas and... More
