We never planned to visit Taos, it was spur of the moment from Santa Fe. Walking around the old plaza looking for a place to grab coffee, I spied the Trip Advisor sticker on the window, and decided it must be good. Was it ever. Coffees made to order. Charming vibe. Service friendly. International currencies plastered on the walls. I... More

People watching to beat the band early in the AM, and a superb latte, make this the quintessential Taos early morning coffee joint.....

If you are looking for a good cup of coffee, you will not be disappointed here. The only drawback are there not much space to sit and enjoy coffee you want to- you may want to take it elsewhere.

We never miss stopping at the World Cup. Hard to park but easy walk to square to sit in the sun and enjoy a latte. Still have my decal on the car window.

Average coffee and sultry, if not cold, service. It is conveniently located near the square. In would go back for the scones and ignore the service or lack thereof.

This is one of those hip and hippie kind of places where they have good coffees. Nothing stellar, but they keep a fairly clean place (could use to be a bit cleaner), have an average selection of apparently well made baked goods and a laid back low key staff who would say "Dude" a lot if it was allowed within...

I must have stopped there a half a dozen times trying to find my way one day and each time they cheerfully provided directions. Good coffee. Seems to be a popular place for locals.

Wanted a caffeine break while visiting downtown. Conveniently located right near the town square, this was a good stop recommended by a local. They have great variety of favors. I loved my iced bittersweet chocolate/ orange coffee that contained real bits of peel! A few benches on porch allow for people watching
