This coffee shop is located in an interesting area of the city. A community garden is right outside the building so when you sit in the cafe, it's like you are in a beautiful secret garden. The coffee is sooo good. We also loved the chia latte. And the chocolate chip cookies, blueberry crumble cake, and peach cake were something... More

Bypass the sterility & officiousness of Starbucks & instead try this tiny charming café w/ colorful décor, including hand-painted tables & chairs, that provides a chance to sit back, catch your breath & smell the coffee. Service is cordial & the usual coffee house menu is satisfying & sensibly priced.

There were homemade baked fare to chose from, as a variety of gelato and hot/cold drinks. I was amused by the server's response when I asked for a macchiato. He showed me the size... More

This ice cream type store is probably a great stop on a date following a movie or whatever daters do now. Very limited selection of ice cream, which is what I was looking for, but unusual combinations of cake and ice cream and other treats.

Came in looking for cupcakes since it was on their menu but was bummed out that they actually don't sell them :( I bought a redvelvet cake and was thoroughly impressed with their frosting! Also had a cappuccino and it was very well made!

This is an outstanding place to visit for a little something sweet as one can continue to walk around a historic American city. Perfect location and great little sweets for anyone to enjoy

The Barista’s are super friendly and very helpful with their menu. All the baking is done on premisis. Can't wait to return to try another dessert. This time we had the Jewish Apple cake. The Spring Fling Tea was a real treat.
