“Nice Local Coffee Shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I would take this over a Starbucks or other big name place any day. The coffee was good and the bagels were homemade, almost focaccia like in taste and texture. The breakfast sandwich had a good homemade taste and was made fresh. The ambiance was very nice and there was a good mix of locals and tourists enjoying a cup.

“Really great coffee -”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Super creamy. Also bought some espresso to take home. Should have gotten more...Cute place for hanging out although we stopped in before hitting the road so didn't stick around. Friendly staff.

“Too Starbucky for me”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you walked in blindfolded and then took a look around, you would swear you were in a Starbucks but with better coffee. I had a chocolate chip cookie which, like Charbucks, was so-so and overpriced at a buck fifty. Pass on this place and dream of Dunkin' Donuts!

“Best Coffee I've Ever Had in Colorado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Ate a late breakfast there on a Sunday morning. In Up Town Pagosa Springs. Worth the drive. Got quiche and breakfast burrito. Both were delicious, but the real star was the coffee. The atmosphere is straight Starbucks/coffee shop. It was full of people reading the paper, working on computers, and just hanging out. Even if you stay down town, worth the drive. Not the easiest place to find, so mapquest it before you leave.

Very good coffee and food choices here -- and the small town cafe atmosphere inside is a pleasure to experience.
