Stopped in on the way back home and was amazed with the cup of coffee they are putting out. Thank you so much for believing in doing things the old fashion way. Roasting, grinding and freshly made, what are you waiting for, go get a cup now!

I stopped in here as we were about to drive home from our vacation and had to make the stop in before we left. It's a nice little coffee shop in a great location. I had an iced coca mocha (which is white chocolate, dark chocolate and coconut mocha) and it was great! I love iced mocha drinks and was... More

First of all the owner is super-friendly which make going back a delightful experience. The coffee is really great and it opens early (we have small kids that like to rise with the sun!). If you like your coffee this is a must-stop shop!

This coffee place has been open for more than a half dozen years. When if first opened, it's boast was that the coffees were locally roasted and top notch. Our revisit indicated the beans were still strong and well presented. Lots of flavor, plus good service. Another Corolla surprise.

Love this local coffee shop. The beans are fresh, the chai is Oregon Chai (which is delicious), and the space is warm, inviting, and enticingly aromatic.

Wow has this place gone downhill and gone touristy...my husband used to go there before we were married, and he remembers when it was just the bare bones basic coffee shop. Even up to a few years ago, it was still relatively bare bones. This year, it was way too touristy for us. Beware of the candy, by the way,... More

We came here on the recommendation of a friend and were incredibly pleased. It was a stop every morning for us on our vacation. The White Lightning is their signature drink and it was my choice every time. The employees were kind and courteous and the service was very quick. They have Wi-Fi and some areas to sit down so...

The latte's were decent but the cheap plastic cups they come in make me cringe. They have that awfully cheap plastic lid that probably seeps chemicals into your beverage. This place has such potential but they need to buy better cups.

The owner really knows coffee inside and out. You can tell he's passionate about it when he is talking about the different selections of coffee to customers. There are several items to choose from on the menu so there is something for everyone - even smoothie drinkers! I ordered a pumpkin latte and really enjoyed it. They also sell a... More
