Stop here for your caffeine needs. It's a cute local coffee spot that offers inside and outside seating, treats, hot and cold drinks and free wifi. Prices are reasonable and they definitely acknowledge their regular customers. Service was not fast but not too slow either. Check it out when you are tired of I those chain coffee places.

Often buy their ground coffee. I've never plunked down at any of their tables but there are always a lot of people, a lot of laptops, a lot of deep conversations going on. Love their outdoor patio - on warmer days.

This is listed in the local paper as one of the top 10 coffeehouses in the Twin Cities - that's what drew me to this place. It was delightful - from the unique sign suggesting that would-be burglars escape the dark side and apply for a job - to the neighborhood group arriving, dogs in tow, as if on parade.... More

I go everyday. Best people, best patio and best coffee! Hands down! Their cold press is amazing! The Courtney Speacial and Mexican Mochas are signature drinks and are fabulous. Since they roast all their own coffee beans, the coffee is always fresh and roasted to perfection.

The owner fired a really nice employee (Jeanie), said she was "moving on", then gave her a party. Not very nice. She didn't want to leave. He said they needed to make a "fresh start." It's really creepy to fire someone and then say they left of their own accord.

Take my advice and never go here. I walked in for coffee and the Barista rudely interrupted my conversation I was having with a friend and even lied and told me they were "out of coffee." This was not a funny joke, and the drink I ordered really did not taste good at all.

I love the bean factory and stop in here on my walk home from work for cocoa or coffee. they roast their own beans so you can literaly smell this place way before you can see it. It's small warm and cozy which is so perfect for mn winters. My husband will only buy beans from here for his morning... More
