Decent Coffee, Industrial Setting

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!

Stopped by this place. It's buried in a row of outlet stores so we had low expectations. However, as soon you step in, you know they're serious about coffee. The staff are lovely - very friendly and welcoming. The coffee is really fantastic. Smooth and delicious. The only downside is there are nothing available to eat - not even a... More

Maybe not what you'd call cozy, but I loved the decor. But that's not the main thing, is it? Hubby and I both enjoyed the coffee and its artful presentation. If we lived here, we would visit often.

Went on vacation for a few days and noticed black velvet coffee was new and decided to go in and try it out. Ordered a mocha and was instantly hooked. Great coffee and a reasonable price! We went back every day we were in Mammoth- if you need a delicious cup while you're in town go here!
