Great coffee shop and several options for breakfast and lunch. Healthy and fresh alternatives to fast food. Coffee and specialty teas to match the big chains. Tables at back have lake side view both inside and out. Would go back and will go daily next time we are in town.

I had an iced chai tea latte and my boyfriend had an iced mocha. We sat outside at the table and chairs and enjoyed our drinks. Perfect for the scorching heat that day!
