“Great quiche...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The quiche lorraine was delicious...velvety texture, crisp crust and perfectly complimented by a skinny caramel apple latte. The place was busy on a late Sept. morning...seems to be a meeting place for locals and visitors alike. We stopped by for a quick lunch before we headed out of town and the chicken burrito with black beans and rice was just the right size and nicely seasoned. The herbal iced tea was delicious as well. If I lived in Ely, I am sure that I would be a regular here.

“wi-fi didn't work for me”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

I was very impressed with hotels and restaurants in Minnesota that had quick easy to use wi-fi. So I expected the same at this restaurant that advertised free wi-fi. Had to ask for the password and could not get it to work. Got tired of trying and gave up. Was confusion at counter trying to order a latte as they wanted input on how I wanted it made. Food was OK but not memorable. Would not return even though the porch is truly wonderful.

“Cozy spot with free wifi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Coffee was good, wifi was good and free, atmosphere was cozy, eclectic and woodsy. What more could you want from a coffee shop? We whiled away a few relaxing hours here one morning.
