“Variable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Laid back, eclectic combination coffee house, bakery, cafe and whatever. About the only place to get a decent cup of coffee out in the valley, except for the incredibly overpriced competition. The bakery goods are excellent, fluffy, rich and seemingly baked with a lot of butter. Decor is minimalist but with some good local art available for purchase. Service is totally dependent on who is working that day. Not a dinner place-they close up in the late afternoon. Not a place with definable standards-very indie.

“Best Coffee in the Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Excellent, strong coffee. Don't expect quick mediocre coffee- this is not Starbucks. Barista takes his time to make you the best cup of joe. Free wifi, charming atmosphere, dog friendly. Went three times during our two night getaway. We will definitely be back!

“Place to chill ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This was our (my husband's actually) coffee stop. We had a late lunch here and the food was good. Big servings.
Free internet. Lots of tables to sit and chill. Came here twice on our stay-cation...so it was definitely a place worth returning to and giving the thumbs up.
