We saw this place and decided to give it a shot. My, my what a "find." Attentive service and amazing food is the standard here. We would have been back for an early breakfast however we headed back to Texas earlier than originally planned. We will definitely catch this diamond in the ruff when next we find ourselves out this... More

The food is very good, especially the Big Breakfast ( no comparison to Mc D's) which includes all you would expect plus delicious potatoes with red sauce. A comfortable place to hang out-- people read, write, work at some tables and can contribute to a community art project in the corner.

I find myself at The Coffee Spot again and again, sometimes just to have an iced raspberry zinger tea and use the free WiFi, sometimes to have a full meal. I've tried the French toast, which didn't excite me too much. It was just two slices of regular bread French toasted up. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but... More

We have hung out here many a Sunday afternoon mostly for the shade of the willow trees and the dog friendliness. People are also friendly. The food is basically an array of in-store made but not always fresh baked goods that are rather large, but not fantastic. Lots of sweet stuff. The coffee is not the best I've ever had... More

We enjoyed our breakfast here. The tortilla that came with my huevas rancheros turned out to be a small cheese quesadilla which I enjoyed. The staff were friendly. Make sure you go to the bathroom - it is colorful and filled with caricatures and small paintings. Fun!

Very friendly people behind the counter which is always welcome. Good food and coffee as well. They also have small works of art from local artisans for sale if you are into that type of thing. 👍

I've been to The Coffee Spot twice as of the writing of this review. The place has lots of seating (three rooms with tables and booths, and several patios with more places to sit) and a bunch of cool art on the walls. I first came primarily for the free WiFi, but I really enjoy the atmosphere here. Music plays... More

This was a nice place to hang out and have coffee and check e-mail while on a road trip. They have an extensive breakfast and lunch menu with really yummy-sounding items. We ordered coffees and they were very good. There was LOTS of outdoor space to sit, and several people brought their dogs with them. The staff was very friendly... More
