Nice coffee shop and not only with a great porch. Great athmosphere and delicious coffee. A bit too strong for my taste but good. A perfect place to relax, enjoy sunset maybe or spend quality time. Indoors is great too. Cute.

Great stop on a winter day, you can see how packed this place probably is during peak season. Very helpful staff and good drinks. Local musicians playing in the back made it a fun upbeat environment!

I cannot attest to the coffee, but my wife talked me into coming every day of our 4-day visit for their regular 4-blend dark roast! I enjoyed a cup of Nutella Gelato on one vist that was simply delicious. Every item in their counters looked amazing, from Tomato Pie to giant chocolate chip cookies. This will be a regular stomping... More

I was given a free tote bag for shop small Saturday before I even bought my coffee. They had a breakfast biscuit and coffee deal for 5 bucks with tax!!! The... More

Stopped in for dessert and had a difficult time deciding between gelato and all the goodies in the bake case. The gelato was excellent. They also offer a variety of coffees; plain Jane, frozen, flavored, smoothies and hot tea and cocoa. They offer a drink that's made from gelato and expresso that I would have loved to try but didn't... More

We really enjoyed stopping here for a cup of coffee and pastry. Husband said the dark roast was very good. I had a coke. We enjoyed just sitting and looking at the beautiful river park. The Peach Pecan pastry was delicious! I would highly recommend this cafe.

I would like to consider myself a bit of a coffee fanatic. My wife and I enjoy a great cup. Today I had a carmel frappicino (can't remember what they called it). The drink tasted to the same as the substandard contents dunkin donuts uses (Frozen Coffee Base: Water, Frozen Coffee Concentrate). I really didn't taste any coffee. The carmel... More

We use La Colombe Torrefaction for our coffee. If they are substandard then I guess all the coffee critics and connoisseurs are just plain crazy and this guy is smarter then all of them. I would not be so aggressive but the title " substandard coffee " bothers me when I have spent so much time and jumped through so... More
