“Small place, worth a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We never planned to visit Taos, it was spur of the moment from Santa Fe. Walking around the old plaza looking for a place to grab coffee, I spied the Trip Advisor sticker on the window, and decided it must be good.

Was it ever. Coffees made to order. Charming vibe. Service friendly. International currencies plastered on the walls. I spotted two from Taiwan, maybe more, I'm not sure.
My drink was the mocha dilletante (sp?), I forgot what my friend got, Mexico something. I'm not sure that I tasted all the flavors mentioned on the menu but it was a damn fine cup of coffee!

Too bad there wasn't any WiFi here and with only a few stools, doesn't encourage lingering.

People watching to beat the band early in the AM, and a superb latte, make this the quintessential Taos early morning coffee joint.....

“Good Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you are looking for a good cup of coffee, you will not be disappointed here. The only drawback are there not much space to sit and enjoy coffee you want to- you may want to take it elsewhere.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We never miss stopping at the World Cup. Hard to park but easy walk to square to sit in the sun and enjoy a latte. Still have my decal on the car window.

“Great scones and coffee cake”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Average coffee and sultry, if not cold, service. It is conveniently located near the square. In would go back for the scones and ignore the service or lack thereof.
