Best coffee in America!

We stopped off here to get a take away on our way out for the day, what can I say...this cup of coffee was the BEST cup of coffee I have had in America! Smooth, robust & strong if you love your coffee you can't not stop here! We got 2 coffees & a coconut macaroon for $9USD! So cheap!... read more

I'm not really into coffee so I can't really judge the place. The decor is minimal. The coffee selection seemed ok to me. I tried the mocha and a cranberry biscotti... I liked it a lot. I'm working next door so I'll be trying this place again. Every time I pass by, the place is full of people on their... More

It's a mix of wine bar, beer bar and coffee shop.. Add great music, an industrial atmosphere and great cakes and macaroons and fruit bars. Excellent option to spend an afternoon sipping coffee and enjoying good company.

The staff was very friendly. The coffee good though there were not a lot of variations. The setting is rather cold and stark. Hardly inviting. No big easy chairs to plop into on a cold day. There are other better coffee houses in town.

Fresh brewed coffee was smooth and my vanilla latte was thick and yummy. At just $2 a slice, the banana bread was a nice added treat! We were able to sit in the fabric chairs and booth for added comfort.

Hi, we really wanted to like this. Our coffee tasted and smelled like pot! That wasn't part of the extensive description!

Stopped here for a coffee and were surprised to walk into a very modern minimalist space with great decor. The barista was so friendly and knew what he was doing (even by Australian standards). Coffee tasted great and there is free wifi - always a plus!

Ordered cappuccinos which were so good. Nice and strong. Very friendly service including nearby hiking tips! Also purchased a coconut bar which was incredible. Great coffee shop!

Loved their coffee and hot chocolate 2 years ago when we were in Mammoth, visited them this past w/end and boy, we were so disappointed. My coffee tasted really thin and had not substance or flavor to it, my kids' hot chocolate was just so so. The Barista was really nice an sweet though, can't speak the same about her... More
