What a cool little place. I was running errands and was looking for some place to get coffee and something to eat. I saw the sign and took a chance. It was fantastic! Great atmosphere. Great service. Coffee was outstanding. Even the breakfast sandwich was delicious. Neat little shop and a nice, comfortable seating area. Lends itself to wanting to... More

Jan runs a friendly place and the family actually grows coffee in Central America and roasts their own beans. My regular winter drink has been a large mocha and it is just the right combination of espresso and chocolate. The regular coffee offerings always include a dark and a light roast. Tasty treats to eat as well. It's a pleasure... More

Overall a very good coffee shop but I have received poor lattes (weak or watery or tasted like chai when ordering a regular latte) too many times to attribute it to one new barista. Somewhat inconistent.

Coffee here is authentic, fresh, delicious. Provides that coffee shop experience I've come to be addicted to. Hate the hours, though.

I go here not because the coffee is the best but because it's local and convenient. I like that they roast their own beans they typically have 4 offerings of brewed coffee and a variety of snacks and specialty beverages. The help is friendly and the sort that knows the regulars. My 3 year old loves to play with their... More

George and staff make this neighborhood coffeeshop feel like home. Whether it's to go our to hang out, this Ia the place to get coffee. Locally roasted blends guarantee a great coffee experience. Whole and ground coffees, tea and gifts round out the charm of this comfy shop wedged into a sterile strip mall.
