“Great little coffee shop and 'cafe', convenience store”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This shop sits in the City Loft Hotel though it clearly has a steady stream of local customers in addition to the guests. For a smaller space, they pack a lot of service and food and non-food options, both off-the- shelf and prepared on location. In addition to excellent coffee, in the morning, they have an assortment of pastries and muffins, fresh granola, fresh fruit. I was impressed they had both soy and almond milk available, as we eat vegan. During the day the offer sandwiches and snacks, many healthy. They have thoughtfully chosen, small selection of wines and beers in addition to quality soft drinks. They carry local and major national newspapers and magazines. The staff is excellent: friendly, helpful and efficient.

“Ahh, coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you are looking for a good cup of coffee, friendly staff and a cozy atmosphere, then this is the place to go. There is a cute little room that is off the min area that is perfect to have a small meeting without distubing others. local newspaper's, grab and go food juices and water round it out. No wonder they have a steady stream of customers!

“Frozen coffee too liquified!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Coffee is great here and love the scones but every time I come and get the blended coffee drink it's too liquified like they don't put enough ice in the blender. I love blended drinks but when you don't put enough ice it's literally just like drinking cold coffee not a frozen drink.
