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

I could smell it before I could see the small wooden shack that is Crucial Coffee Café. I walked in, looked at the specials board, and asked about the Pumpkin Spice latte. The barista (a local college student) told me that, yes, it had a lot of flavor, and also told me that she likes it with a twist (chocolate).... More

This place is a cute, quaint, little shed. No restrooms. Great menu options for coffee drinks and offers desserts. Better to walk here than find a place to park because I couldn't find a great option to park nearby. The first time I went here, I waited for a bit and finally called out "Hello?". The young gal came, asked... More

The coffee is very good here. There is usually a long line - particularly if it is cold outside. The pastries are pretty good too. The people that work there don't always work well under the pressure - but the coffee is good as are the flavored coffee.
