Best coffee ever. Lots of bakery treats - muffins, cookies, lemon bars etc. I go here as often as I can when I come to Pagosa Springs.

Never ceases to amaze me how people fancy themselves coffee shop owners and baristas, invest their money and energy in making a coffee shop - and yet not know how to make even half decent coffee. If you own a coffee shop, why in the world wouldn't you want to make top notch coffee???? Certainly charged full price and then... More

I do like to come here for coffee when I am in town. Although my family and I feel like we get worse service and treatment because we are not locals. This causes us to not go there sometimes. The coffee is good though.

We come once a year and love the coffee, great treats, consistent quality. Clean place and convenient location. The only thing, unless your a local you get ignored and obviously not equal service. If you don't mind a cold shoulder, you will get some great coffee!

My sincere apologies. While we are certainly the locals choice for coffee it is our objective to make everyone feel like they are a local. Again sorry for this experience, and thank you for your patience during these extremely busy holidays. More

Look into this coffeehouse a little before your trip- they have art classes & it would be a fun date night while on vacation! I wish we knew about it earlier, my husband & I would have had a lot of fun!

This is the best coffee shop and restaurant combo in Pagosa Springs. My wife and I have visited this cafe many times the last few years while on vacation in Pagosa Springs and love it! Great location off of Rt. 160, friendly service, great coffee (organic) with many choices, treats, delicious breakfast and lunch menu items made with healthy ingredients,... More

We've had coffee, latte, quiche and bagles. They are good! Staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. It's a clean and busy coffee house. Recommended!

We went out of our way to go there hoping for a good cup of coffee. Instead, it was as watered-down as the motel coffee. The Zucchini bread was also disappointing. It was dried around the edges.
