Fantastic coffee

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... read 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!

Early birds get 2 for 1. What's not to love?? Great fresh roasted and dripped coffee, great staff courteous and cheerful. Try the chocolate/coconut bars for a post-hike treat!

We visited this coffee shop two times during our recent trip to Mammoth. My husband said the latte they made was the best that he ever had. I had mint tea that was delicious and a coconut bar, which I had only intended having a few bites of but it was so good I ate the whole thing. Their decor... More

Skip the Americano coffee-- it's as weak as water and overpriced. Only reason to come back is free WIFI.

I was sorely disappointed with coffee in the US. However this place had some of the best coffee. I even bought some to bring back home. Loved the rustic feel of the place, the service was the best. Even got some great advice on an alternative way to get to Las Vegas. Thanks for refueling me and showing that you... More

A big empty space, not cozy. Met friends for business at 8 AM. Only one employee on duty, no coffee condiments available unless you asked for them. Pastry offerings were sparse and several days old, no other food selections available. Coffee, unfortunately was very weak. Friends have raved about this place in the past, I have never been sure why.... More

Best coffee I've had in a while. The vanilla latte with almond milk is phenomenal. Don't ruin it by adding sugar...the natural flavors from the espresso, vanilla and nutty zing from the almond milk is perfection...and made with a little "love".

Coffee snobs and Europeans alike will be more than pleased at the coffee offered here. Creamy espresso, Latte Art, Cold Brew, they even offer raw milk upon request. So pleased to have this bit of culture and excellence in Mammoth!
