“Best strong fresh coffee in Mammoth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Being from the San Francisco Bay Area, we are hardcore "Peets" coffee fans (i.e., strong fresh dark roast) and this is almost the only coffee house in California that serves better coffee than Peets. The pastries are phenomenal as well. Such a great coffee-and-pastry combination makes up for the shopping center setting.

“Excellent coffee, great cafe environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Gotta love driving for 5 hours and then finding a great cup of Joe. Seriously. the coffee here is spectacular. and the local vibe so great. I love hanging in a cafe and chilling, and this is a great place to do it. Definitely check it out when you're in Mammoth next!

“Bad service and attitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

One day it is great and the next the cashier today was rude, and assumptive. Won't go back there are lots of coffee places here. To make it worse she was talking smack as we left with other customers when we politely said to cancel the order. This place does not deserve the business.

We enjoyed this coffee shop for the few days we were at the Mammoth mountain bike park. Good coffee, people and atmosphere.

“Try the Elvis Drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Fun place; smart about food and ingredients. I can't remember the exact name of it, but they have a drink named after Elvis. Scrumptious.
