“Great coffee, great soup, great ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We enjoyed this stop on Sunday afternoon that we made a point of returning the following day before leaving town. Very nice place with adjoining pottery shop. A definite must-do stop in Hannibal, surrounded by nice galleries on Main Street.

“What a coffee shop should be!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I love checking out this place every time I go here. It's locally owned and really supports local artists. Lots of great art/wars to browse/buy and really good lattes. Come, sit a spell, take a load off.

“Jangled nerves and not from the coffee”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

If you want a place to relax and have a cup of coffee this is not the place. The staff are constantly screeching across the room at each other so loudly and so continuously that there is not even a split second of peace. Occasionally one of them will step into the back room and make sounds that sound like they are throwing trash cans around the room and then banging on them for good measure.
Very strange!!

“a good place to hang- for a bit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

The coffee, oddly, is just OK, a bit diluted. The sandwiches are pretty good, as are the pastries. Nice atmosphere.

“My husband loves this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

An enjoyable place to go sit for a cup of coffee while people-watching in downtown Hannibal. The sandwiches are very good too if you are looking for something besides the typical burger.
