“BEST Gelato outside of Rome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Went to Midland for a get away weekend with my daughter and stopped in there because it mentioned "Gelato" on a window. I've had the authentic stuff in Rome and haven't been able to find anything close in metro Detroit. Who knew Midland would have it! OMGosh it was exact! It was so good. Great, friendly staff and warm atmosphere. Never even got to the coffee or pastries. Had them freeze two quarts of the gelato overnight so I could get it home. I would recommend it to anyone going to Midland.

“Expertly brewed coffee, delicious fruit smoothies, pastries, and space to chat with friends and enjoy free wifi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

Stumbled on this gem of a coffee shop located on Main Street. The place has superb daylighting, hardwood floors, inviting atmosphere, fruit smoothies to delight the palate and the conversation with Barista D. Date (who is also an engineer and successful small business owner herself) delightful. I was told that there is live music several nights a week (there is a small stage set up for it in the rear of the shop), free wifi, two (or more) flat screens, and a welcoming environment. Will definitely visit again when in the area. It's open weekly from 7am to 9pm.
