“Best coffee in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2008

Great coffee and terrific snacks and serious food (try their chicken salad) right next door to a bookstore. They also sell their coffee and will grind it for you if you want right before your eyes. The coffees of the day change and include some interesting coffees. In good weather we like to eat outside, but the tables inside are fun too, with postcards and pictures of places you'd like to go. It is a real expresso place, with everything made the old way. Smells wonderful too. The cream italian sodas are a taste treat...try the strawberry or some other berry. We simply don't go anywhere else any more. Oh, and the service is so friendly you'll think you know the owners.
