We arrived at our hotel late at night and were hungry. This place was suggested since it was just down the street. We heard great live music coming through the door and it was packed with people.

Stopped here for take out espresso macchiato while visiting the cute historic district of the town. An extremely friendly female staff member took our order and the espressos were perfectly made and very tasty.

Great place to grab a cup of Joe and a cookie or pastry. We even bought a French press, which we couldn't find anywhere else in town. 😄 coconut macaroons are the bomb!

My husband went here for coffee at about 8pm, the place was jumping. They had an Irish sounding classical band playing and the music was beautiful. They had a wide assortment of different coffees which were very fresh. The service staff were great. We would definitely come back. Also great art work on the walls.

Lots of live music over the years. Smoked Chicken Salad is a nice light savory meal; hot chocolate or chai tea go well with a game of chess.

Been traveling to Fort Bragg from San Francisco multiple times each year for 25. This remains a stellar cup of coffee and baked goods. True coffee house atmosphere (Unlike the big chains). and Nightly Music!

Nice place to relax, read a paper, listen to music. Smoked chicken salad was a favorite, nice for sweets or hot chocolate too.

Good stop of coffee and roll for breakfast. They offer a pretty complete menu but we weren't interested in full fare.

The food here is delicious and they have a variety of items to order. The only drawback is that it is cash only, but they do have an ATM on site.

We were there in the afternoon so we didn't experience their musical offerings. Coffee was terrific. Plenty of tables and a fun, casual decor. Almost a throwback to the 60s. We didn't order sandwiches but the ones that passed by looked good.

Thank aggada
