Love this place. Always fun to see what the local coffee place is like. Good coffee , killer muffins. I tried on of the giant macaroons and would drive out of my way for another. Quirky and fun like a coffee place should be

Neat quirky coffee shop that rivals selections in any big city. We were thrilled by the flavor options and all different types of milk offered, very much appreciated especially for those of us with food restrictions. Super nice staff, quick efficient service!

Yup, the food is fresh and very good. I had a cranberry turkey pecan salad, which was delicious. My husband enjoyed the Rockwell ham & turkey sandwich. Cool place with many good items on the menu. Would have given it an excellent rating if not for the aloof, disinterested staff behind the counter.

We return to this amazing little place every chance we get! It's also a favorite for all ages to relax, have a drink and snack, enjoy the scenery and so much more. My niece is staying with us and we take her there...it's one of the things she really looks forward to. Lots of great memories!!

Stopped in for lunch. Sandwich selection very impressive. Fresh breads and lots of meat & veggie choices. My wife loved her hummus wrap! Incredible coffee selections but we opted for the freshly brewed tea over ice. Excellent! Lots of pastry choices too. Super friendly staff and priced right. One of the highlights of Hannibal for sure.

Loved the large bowlful of cheddar cheese jalapeño soup and the homemade chicken salad sandwich. All the pastries looked great. Service was quick. The relaxed coffee shop atmosphere is another plus.

This is the place to be, whether you are a tourist or a local resident. The food is delicious, and what makes the food taste even better is the great atmosphere to dine in. Service is exactly what you would expect in a busy, bustling restaurant.

While shopping and browsing I stopped here to get my morning caffeine. I was good and just got the coffee but the looks of the pastries was very tempting. Husband got a muffin which he said was good. Good amount of seating, enjoyable atmosphere and a very nice alternative to a large mainstream coffee shop.

We stopped in after a few hours of exploration in Hannibal. They have pretty standard coffee house pricing and options. They had ample, comfortable seating in a nice location in town.

If you are in the Hannibal area, this is a great choice for a cup of coffee, some small European chocolates (Lindt/Ritter), yummy pastries, and good coffee. There is plenty of seating area including outside and it is walkable to all downtown attractions. On the day we stopped, there were some issues with a coffee machine so it was a... More
