“Great little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I went here based on the reviews and also because of the location ( by edison/Ford.) This place is a real gem, it is in an old converted house in a residental area. It has nice comfortable indoor/outdoor seating. I ordered a coffee and the Orange Coconut donut and thought they were both very very good. You need to go early because they tend to sell out of some of their food. Although the food is good the main reason to go is the friendly staff and atmosphere. It is simply just a cool place to relax and have cup of coffee.

“Great coffee and fresh super donuts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We saw a TV ad for this place stating the "best donuts". They are right. A funky feel to this little gem. Bright colors, nice smooth jazz playing in the background and very friendly.

Coffee fresh roasted at the premises. You can have drip brewed or French press coffee. Donuts that are warm from just being made. I love the cinnamon sugar ones and my wife has the orange coconut. A favorite seems to be the maple bacon donut.

Be prepared to wait in a short line at rush times. Well worth the wait, and I hate to wait in line for most anything.

A great place to spend an hour to relax and have a memorable time.

“Excellent Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

I'm not a doughnut guy, but they are good. If you want to eat breakfast, be sure to show up when the rest of the world does. The food goes quickly... because it's good.
