A fun place to have coffee and sweets with friends.

My friends and I have coffee there three times a week. They have excellent coffee tea and a variety of scones, cookies and other things to eat with the drinks. A real breakfast is also available. In addition they have an excellent selection of cheeses, deli meats and chocolates.

I went here for a treat on a day off while in the area working recently and was disappointed. The Americano was not as good as the chain coffee shops in town and the chocolate cupcake was very dry--I believe it was at least day-old, but not advertised as such.

The best local food in Klamath Falls and I love that my dollars go not only to support the local economy but to help young adults transitioning into the work force - learning skills from farming to business management to barista.

The atmosphere is relaxed and communal. There are large tables and a bar at the window if you want a little privacy. There are also large comfortable chairs and I believe there is a couch. It is in an old building so there is a little charm to it.

Friendly service, healthy fresh options for breakfast, lunch and snacks. We love going here for coffee, breakfast at times, lunch all the time and that mid day craving. Plus kombucha on tap to boot!

Wow. We were blown away. We just wanted some fresh sandwiches while making the drive down 97 and this hit the spot. Fresh, healthy, all-organic ingredients combined with fantastic sides and salads made this cafe our new lunch spot on Hwy 97! The sandwiches are HUGE: so $8 for this sort of sandwich was a great price. BF got the... More

Came late, just before closing, but everyone was extremely nice. Food was delivered very promptly. They obviously take great pride in their cooking. Especially good was the sweet potato chipotle soup. Perfect flavour with just the right amount of spice.

On a rainy day we stopped in for a bit of lunch. Hubby loved his sandwich and I thought the butternut squash soup was maybe the best I've ever had. Place has a '70's feel to it and all the patrons seemed amazingly happy, which made us happy to be there. I asked & the place has been there 7... More

My husband and I got sandwiches to go. We both ordered a Reuben, mine gluten free. Both were excellent and it was a lovely surprise to find a piece of pineapple and a chocolate each in the bag. Pleasant service and I was helpfully told that all sandwiches could be gluten free. The gluten free bread was good too.

Ice teas, a split sandwich that came with a nice piece of chocolate for dessert, and a split salad...what's not to like, all for $17
