Best coffee we had in Salem. Staff was very friendly and informative. The space and atmosphere was great. I got a wrap and a panini both were excellent. Worth a stop, great for breakfast and lunch.

Had mango smoothie, ice-tea and pumpkin muffin. They were all average quality, but above-average pricing.

Coffee was excellent, food was great. My friend and I had lunch and then went back after a few tourist stops for a crepe for dessert!! Perfect for a quick bite.

It was good. Good wifi, friendly staff - my wrap was just alright, but it's a convenient and nice spot. If you're a foodie there are better places, though.

I stumbled on this little café because I hadn't had breakfast and I was really hungry. I had a breakfast crepe and it was very tasty. They told me right up front that they couldn't cook eggs on-site, and the ones they used were hard-boiled, which was fine with me. The food was good, the place was clean and had... More

What a great place! So many choices on the menu - great for vegetarians! I ate a tuna/tomato/ avocado wrap and a mango smoothie. It was good, but I was jealous of the crepes. They looked amazing! Cozy, lots of seating options and wifi! Good spot to people watch. The service was super fast and super friendly!

Stopped in for lunch, good food. Little pricey, but it's a tourist town. Comfy seats, and wi-fi. Good coffee, nice staff.

A quick rest stop for lunch after the Peabody Essex Museum, this little cafe has great coffee and sandwiches. After ordering lunch we situated ourselves in front of the cafe for excellent people watching while we ate. Definitely a good rest stop while visiting kooky Salem.
