I meet friends here, regularly. The staff is always polite, the coffee is great, the baked goods and candies are wonderful - all in a cozy atmosphere! Plus, I really like seeing the local author's and artists' work for sale.

I love the new Maurie's!! I go there for coffee at least once a week. Staff is super friendly, and the coffee is good. It's also a great place to work, read, or chat with a friend.
