Fantastic coffee shop and more

This is a wonderful alternative to Starbucks. Comfortable seats, lots of outlets, good WiFi, and great food and coffee. The service is excellent; the atmosphere homey and warm.

There are few independent coffee shops around so this is a treasure. The atmosphere in this place is relaxing and cozy. I love to bring my son here and sit by the windows. Good coffee and good tea and the staff is always welcoming.

old time coffee house with great coffee, cookies, cakes, snacks. Music 2 or 3 times a week. Free wifi, nice friendly staff. Something different to do, we love it. More comfy seating would be good for old folks.

Great place to have a cup of good coffee, sit at one of the high old tables (or couches), and talk or surf the web - free wifi!

This was my first visit here. I had the mocha and usually have to get an extra shot of expresso to cut the sweetness at other coffee shops. This cup was perfect not to sweet and yet flavorful. The baristas were friendly and helpful. I had a cranberry muffin that was good too. I will definently go back.

Started going there when they first opened. They were customer oriented and friendly. Then over the years as they got busier, the owners changed. No longer cared about the one who stuck with them through thick and thin. And the coffee not as good. They are closed on Sunday. Think they should go to church and contemplate their actions.

It is so nice to have this little gem in the neighborhood. It is not a real competitor of Starbucks. It is a place to have good coffee and to wile away the time if you wish to relax. There is usually a neighborhood card game in progress to enhance the atmosphere. At night there may be a small band... More

of a place to pass the time or meet up with friends. It's a warm, welcoming and very homey place inside. Small tables and a counter with stools for computer users but also a rich brown leather sofa - like the one in Friends - that's usually taken by whoever was lucky enough to get there first. People come here... More

The coffee is OK I guess, but first you need to walk through the gauntlet of creepy looking chain smoking Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love wannabees out front. The smell inside is awlful unless you enjoy cigarette smoke and BO. The Starbucks up the street is cleaner, safer, and the coffee is better anyway.

This is a great place to buy freshly roasted coffee beans. They serve light fare (spicy wraps, baked items, etc.) and also serve as a music venue. I have not been able to check out any of the bands yet but I do think it must be a nice, intimate place to experience up and coming talent.
