“Just got a cookie to go....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We found this cute cafe located close to The Compass (excellent) restaurant. We just got a cookie and coffee to go but we saw lots of other goodies and great sandwiches. It's a very relaxed coffee house type cafe. Fun and comfy. Enjoy!

“Great coffee and atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

The coffee is a great quality and very nice place to watch people. I love this place because it's a good fit for all walks of life. A true experience of the local culture.

“Good Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Nice place to hang out with friends and also people watching. The food is good, coffee is not that strong like Starbucks.

“Far better than Starbucks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

My husband and I used to go here almost every morning. The staff are very friendly and the cafe has a nice vibe. It is very spacious and the coffee is excellent. They also have good food and always amazing looking cakes (although I haven't indulged yet).

“Best cappucino”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Had probably the best foamed cappucino ever. For less than $3 a deal. Great coffee house atmosphere. Ice cream was mediocre.
