Quick and friendly service. The scone and muffin are huge and not overly sweet which is great. Husband bought a bag of coffee and is drinking it as I write this review!! Will return when in the area.

We had coffee here twice during our mini holiday in Saugatuck, and we found the staff to be extremely friendly, helpful, and enthusiastic! The coffee was delicious, as was the giant ginger molasses cookie. I found the decor to be comfortable and eclectic; using coffee bean sacks to cover the bench seats is a brilliant idea for a coffee shop:)

This is the second time I've stopped in on my two separate trips to Saugatuck. Both times it's taken forever and the customer service is less than par. They are completely unorganized, it's a filthy mess in there, and the staff is condescending and not helpful. The coffee is good tho!

Made a point of going there for breakfast/ coffee every day of our stay. Starbucks shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence by comparison, very busy & popular place but found service... More

We have come here many times over the past few years. Coffee has always been excellent. Pastries are mostly wonderful. All deserts we have tried have been excellent. Ambiance is great.
