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

This is a downtown favorite, with such a casual, friendly atmosphere. The muffins are to die for and the iced coffee is addictive. You can visit friends and hang out, watch the passers by, or look at the pottery offerings next door. Really a neat place to be, sort of our own version of "cafe society".

My husband and I have stopped here twice for double espressos and each time they were excellent and much cheaper than Starbucks. The food and desserts looked lovely and smelled good but we weren't eating at that time so didn't try them. The atmosphere is very cozy and the internet is fast. The rest rooms are clean and the staff... More

Nice stop for morning coffee addiction, but somewhat chaotic nature to the whole environment. Don't get me wrong, I loved their coffee and the pastry selection was overall pretty darn good, so I do recommend you stop here. My husband loved, loved, loved his scone and my muffin was adequate, but not the best I've ever had. What we initially... More

While we did not eat here, we did stop twice for liquid refreshment. Both the coffee and the specialty flavored iced tea were excellent. The ambience is a little quirky but fun. Recommend stopping here... and maybe try the food too. Looked good to me.

This little coffee shop is a nice little spot for a snack and a cup of joe.It is always a fun friendly place to meet up with your friends and family. Run by great people who care about providing the home town service we all deserve.
