Favorite coffee shop in town

Excellent coffee every time we've gone, watch out because they don't take credit, cash only. Had an orange mocha last time we went, one of the best cups I've had at a coffee house in a long time

We stopped in so the kids could get a little drink and the barista offered Italian soda. Nice touch. I'd have given it a 5 if the sodas had a bit more flavor in them. Can't speak to the coffee, but the location is unbeatable.

This is just about as small as a coffee house can get and still be a coffee 'house'. I actually appreciated the fact that a 'small' was 8 ounces. I far prefer quality over quantity. I also loved the Cafe Mocha I had (they have two different ones, both are wonderful). They were not, however, sweet. Personally I love that:... More

My husband preferred his coffee here; I preferred it at Elevation Coffee. Can't go wrong with either, although parking at World Cup is difficult because it's right on the plaza.

I hate to not be supportive of a small coffee shop, but I really just didn't like the coffee! The small was tiny, so I thought it was pretty expensive for its size. It may be that they don't put much syrup or flavoring or something in it, but my White Chocolate Mocha tasted like black coffee. It was a... More

I can't imagine how the espresso/cappuccino could be better! Friendly service and quick turn around even with a line. Right at the north edge of Taos Plaza.

Coffee and Ambiance. It is a place that the locals enjoy because of the quality of the coffee and the friendliness and efficiency of the baristas. They also servce a limited number of home made pastries and cookies that are worth trying. Limied number of stools and counter tops for enjoying the local ambiance and personalities.

Small and homey place, good place to sit on the portal and watch Taos drive by. Staff is friendly and patient, always!
