We stopped in for breakfast one 40 degree day and really enjoyed the mocha-butterscotch latte, hot chocolate and bagel sandwiches. Yum!

If you're low on seats and you have a table with 3 lounge chairs around it for staff only you should offer that to customers. Then if that customer asks for a to-go cup don't just ignore them. Provide one. Customer service in any business should always be number one. This place has a lot to learn.

If you're looking for a good coffee house in Salem, this is the place. The brews are good and the chairs are comfy. Unfortunately, this means it's generally crowded.

If you are looking for a true cafe experience, this is it. They take care in making every drink perfectly and those who get tea get their own teapot. Comfy seating, friendly service. Really love this place.

We always stop in Jaho when visiting Salem! Has such a great vibe and we love seeing customers sitting outside with their dogs. Inside is so cozy, great atmosphere. This trip we tried the coconut bubble (boba) tea and the hot caramel spiced apple cider....yum! Perfect for strolling around Salem on a cool day.

This place is perfect to get a feel for the real heart of Salem. It has the feel of a small town coffee shop and the taste of perfection! It is a great place to hang between site seeing (and warm up!). Worth the money paid!
