Amazing coffee and to-die-for desserts

This cozy spot has breakfast sandwiches, pastries, delicious coffee drinks and great ambience. Right on Main Street in Ellicott City. It is a great way to gear up for a meander through the quirky shops on this cool street. It opens 2 hours before the stores so there is plenty of time to enjoy their offerings. As a matter of...

Great sandwiches!!!!! The smell is fantastic! The staff was friendly enough but a bit in attentive, given their young age that was expected. I would def go back if in the area.

We like to visit this place almost every time we come to the historic part of town. It is a particular favorite for the local college crowd (UMBC in particular). The coffee is good and hot. Plenty of flavors to please just about everyone. The pastries and snacks are particularly good at this place. I have tried the blueberry muffins,... More

Stopped in for a hot drink on a cold day and was pleasantly surprised! Cute, tiny (read: kinda tight when crowded) spot in historic Ellicott City. Members in the group only had their coffee drinks but they were delicious! In a quick look at their food menu it seems they have sandwiches and vegetarians options, great looking desserts and even...

Fresh well made sandwiches and the coffee selection is always good. Very informal setting with a great location in the middle of the historic down town. Even when it is very busy, it doesn't take long to get your food. Lots of really good dessert/pastry items.
