An Adorable Must Try

This place is just so cute! They put a twist on typical coffee, hot chocolate, and other things. They are a bit pricey, but worth it if you want unique.

If you want to have the best spot to relax after your long day then you found the right place. You will sit nestled among foliage and shabby chic furniture while consuming the most DECORATIVE and most ELABORATE coffees. Their hot chocolate list has at least 20 flavor styles. The coffee will beat Starbucks (sorry) and the price of the... More

Wanted a coffee and came across this little place. Great selection of coffees, with flavors, smoothies, etc. The garden to sit in is really cozy to sip your drink.

When we first passed this spot while strolling around the old city, I was immediately attracted to the garden area, which was attractively lit after sunset. We went back after dinner to enjoy coffee and tea, of which there were several options, and some of the best key lime pie I have ever eaten. Then, we enjoyed a good hour... More

Sis and I dropped in to try a chocolate mint hot chocolate. It was presented to us looking like a work of art, on top of that; tasted excellent. They offered a variety of options for coffees, ice cream, candy, and dessert options too! This place puts Starbucks to shame! Give them a try! You won't be disappointed! We can't... More

Great little coffee shack. We tried the Snickers coffee and the coconut-french vanilla. Both were really good. Cute outdoor garden seating area.

Wonderful coffee and terrific, friendly staff. The place is tiny, but there's a quaint little garden with seating just outside. This is our go to place for a good cup of coffee.
