I’ve been coming here for a year and a half now for my caffeine. Amaranta knows exactly how to make the perfect latte, she’s a dog lover and has a great sense of humor! Chuy makes the best pancakes and Mexican omelettes. Highly recommend!

This is one of my favourite places to stop in for a bagel with cream cheese, sliced apple and almonds with a little bit of cinnamon sprinkles on top. Great service and the owner Amaranta is always there with her little dog overseeing everything.

Great coffee and treats, my grandparents told me to go (they stop by there every morning for coffee)! Had the best coffee of my trip. Their food looked delicious but I had already ate. Was actually upset because everything looked so great! Very comfy couches...More
