Great Place

Fantastic Coffee, food, and service. Perfect! Also loved sitting on the outdoor porch with a great view of the local landscape. Don't miss it for breakfast.

The gentleman who waited on us was super friendly! He made THE BEST sugarfree caramel soy latte (extra strong) ;)) Also a nice patio to enjoy!

Friendly folks on both sides of the counter. Great coffee and tea, good breakfast fare and conversation. Stopped on a visit to my son's the year before and made it my morning spot during my visit. Made sure I returned again this year with my husband.

You will find all sorts of coffee drinks, wide varieties of tea, soda, and pastries here. The staff is friendly. There are even some comfy chairs and a sofa to relax on. There is an outdoor deck too. Free wifi is available. A great meeting place!

Overall the staff were very friendly and inviting, but there was nothing that really stood out about the food, drinks, or fare that was outstanding.

The coffee was fantasitc and the person who opened the cafe every morning was fantastic. They open at 5:30 on week days and by the end of our stay, my husband was going behind the bar to poor his own coffee. They make you feel right at home.

Great local coffee. Casual atmosphere. Decent breakfast burritos. Good place to solve the problems of the world with friends on a Saturday morning, or just hang out.

Starbuck's across the street has better coffee. Breakfast pastries were pretty uninspiring. Next time I'll try Cafe 13.
