A great place to stop and have a super cup of coffee and bakery goods. The atmosphere was very inviting and during my week stay in the area I made it a point to go there at least once a day.

We stopped here mid afternoon. Had very good lattes and a delicious lemon poppyseed muffin. The atmosphere is quaint, warm and relaxing.

Stopped in to pick up some food and a chai. The environment is nice and relaxing with great art for sale on the walls. There are tables and chairs along with some couches to relax in. The burritos I ordered were very good as well as some pastries. Yummy. The employees were very nice and pleasant. Plan on returning soon.

Stopped in to use wireless and grab a cup of coffee. Their coffee is good and the atmosphere is nice as well. Self serve all you can drink coffee for $2. Bakery items look good but didn't try.

Though our hotel offered a continental breakfast, my daughter and I would walk to City on a Hill for coffee and their excellent bakery (and outstanding sandwiches). Coffee-house style seating, "refill your cup" station on the honor system...always crowded but always able to find a place to sit.

If you like good coffee, there is no better place than City On A Hill Coffee that we know of. My wife's latte was perfect. The baked good were also tasty.

Nice coffee and a good selection of pastries to start the day. Breakfast burritos are very good also.

We stopped in to take an hour to reconnect to the outside world. The atmosphere was great and the staff was wonderful - however the wifi was down, so we moved on quicker than we would have liked.
