I have been here a couple times, just for coffee, but decided on lunch for a Sunday afternoon. The baristas were friendly and polite as always and served a fresh cup of phenomenal coffee.

Located in the downtown neighborhood of Tremont, this lunch spot reminded us of the Ballard area in Seattle. Nice vibe, lovely baked goods, delicious croissant sandwiches and some outdoor tables make a lovely spot to spend a relaxing hour or two.

I really enjoyed stopping here on a frigid day of touring Cleveland. Mexican Hot Chocolate is amazing. Great decor too!

The owner is a dear, but the rest of the staff is rude, rude,... More

Coffee, Food, and Staff are the best! Opens at 7am, darn good bagels! Extra meaty chili at lunch is my favorite
