Go on a morning when you have nothing else planned, bring your laptop or a book (or a good friend to chat with), and don't miss the Amish Bake if they're offering it. Friendly counter staff, friendly servers, friendly customers. Hey, if the staff isn't getting stressed about the wait times, you shouldn't either. Enjoy yourself and have another cup... More

The owners are hands on. They set the bar very high with their level of service. Great atmosphere and tasty food...especially the oatmeal!,there are plenty of bakery, tea and coffee options. They offer almond milk if dairy is not your thing.

The coffees and atmosphere (I didn't try the food yet) in this lovely place make it among my favorite destinations anywhere, and that is saying something! Original art for sale, a folky-rock music playlist that could be my own and a spacious place to hang out and enjoy it all! I love the exposed brick and original wood floors in... More

I love this place! It is truly a hometown cafe....all the food is hand prepared and it can sometimes take awhile,but it is well worth the wait. A coffee/ cafe shop should never be somewhere you hurry in and out of....the owners support the local artists, beautiful paintings! Why buy stock prints when you can own an original oil/ watercolor?... More

What a great place to stop for some coffee and great made from scratch breakfast. Yes you will need to wait, but that just gives you more time to relax and enjoy the atmosphere!

A warm friendly place to meet friends for a cup of coffer. Try their breakfast egg sandwich. You will never go back to McDonalds.

Just passing through but if you are looking for a good cup of coffee, this is the place. Small local and fresh. Definitely interested in going back to taste the food

Love the breakfast sandwiches and fresh fruit! Coffee is great as well. Not huge servings but is the right amount to start your day.

Wish I visited this place at the beginning of my trip and not at the end, so I could have gone more than once! Such a cute coffee house with delicious food, great variety of coffee flavors, and a nod to conservation. Mix up all of these great attributes and serve them in a cozy environment and you have the...
