It was freezing cold and had the best pick me shot of caffeine just in time! Cute little wood cottage with everything a coffee lover could ever ask for! Authentic drinks made by people who knew what they were doing :)

We had heard about the coffee house on trip advisor, and stumbled on it by accident the first time. We had a wonderful smoothie and flavored coffee. Wow were they good. The service was a little slow, but worth the wait. I felt bad for the people in line behind me. The line became quite long. The prices were competitive.

I have loved this place for a long time due to the wonderful atmosphere. However the owner has become very greedy. Charging over 80 dollars for one salmon dish and a few cups of coffee then adding gratuity. Gave us horrible service. Chef gave us an attitude. Made the whole experience very uncomfortable. Coffee is very average for the above... More

Came in on Christmas day. The coffee is about what you would spend on Starbucks however, it is the best thing I have ever tasted. Customer service was awesome had a chance to speak to JAKE and not only was he informative but he was professional, well spoken, and extremely polite. I have found my new hang out.

I used to stop in here quite often, but the high prices for a cup of "nothing special" coffee has kept me from returning.

My husband and I stopped in here after hearing about it from our Segway guide. My husband and I both love coffee, and don't often splurge on coffee shop coffee. He ordered a coffee with an extra shot. He was happy with his coffee, it was hot, no room for cream, and he spilled it on his hand and got... More
