Great latte and breakfast

While staying nearby, we were looking for an alternative to our hotel breakfast and walked to this spot. The coffee/latte was great. I had the granola with yogurt and fresh fruit--banana, mango, and strawberry. Many were using their computers (complementary wifi available). Great morning spot!

This is just one more reason that Lewisburg was rated "coolest small town". You will certainly have an opportunity to chose what ever type of coffee you enjoy here. There is a nice choice of pastries, but they are not as complete as the choices of coffees.

Love the atmosphere. Great place to hang out with coffee and a pastry. The soups and sandwiches are excellent and healthy. Also, enjoy the availability of wireless.

Passing thru on the freeway, I saw a sign that said "#1 Cool, Small Town" so I got off on the exit. It occurred to me that they could not possibly be a cool town without a great coffee shop, which is what was on mind for about the previous hour...along with the desperate need for a "pit stop".

Everything you want from a local, independent coffee shop including awesome breakfast burritos and baked goods. They'll make you anything to drink! I love lavender earl gray latte! and all the fancy coffee's too. great people watching, nice spaces with sofas, easy chairs, and places to sit in the front window to watch the people go by. and local music...

The coffee and hot cider were excellent and the service was informal, friendly, and efficient. We enjoyed the chance to sit in the front window and enjoy the Lewisburg street scene.

Stopped here yesterday while looking for an "afternoon" pick me up, passing through town. How delightful! We didn't even have coffee. Had a chai tea ( excellent) and hot chocolate which was perfect and not too sweet. noticed they serve lunch too. Lovely atmosphere, comfortable seating and friendly staff. Be sure to visit when in tow

Went around 11 11:30, the place was busy. Even though the place was busy the cash register person was taking receipts and entering them in the cash registrar, which I found odd. I suggested to him I wait until he was finished and he insisted I order. I said I wanted a Med Non fat latte extra shot (something I've... More

I really enjoyed my visit. My coffee was great, but my salad was just okay. I would recommend stopping by.

My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed the hummus salad and hummus wrap, respectively. My mom raved about the dressing and the fresh greens. Aside from a great wrap, I was thrilled with the soup too. Having visited many coffee shops, in Portland, Ore., and many cafés in between, I have to say the quality of the espresso at The Wild... More
