I first visited this quaint little coffee roaster/shop shortly after they opened. A lovely couple purchased it and the quality of the coffee was such a treat. I'm looking forward to going back when I move back to SB soon.

Found this little gem off of trip advisor. I love small quaint coffee shops. The staff was very nice and polite. The bagels were wonderful and the coffee was perfect.
