Regardless of the time of year, Midland has excellent espresso and tea drinks to go along with their locally baked pastries. Convenient location adjacent to the river with plenty of seating in either sunshine or shade.

We came here and got drinks (2 drip coffees and an ice tea) to take with us while we strolled along the river walk path. The overall experience was very nice. The drinks were good and the service was very friendly.

Stopped in with the family before a long hike in the San Isabelle. Perfect fuel for the hike, and when I ordered a "Dry Cap" they didn't look at me like I was from another planet. In and out quickly and it was awesome!!

Ordered a tall latte with extra shot...best drink I’ve had in years from a coffee/espresso cafe. Beautiful artwork pour on top, thick luxurious crema and just perfect balance. My only regret was that I was already driving out of BV headed home for the weekend...More

We came to this place late in the day for dessert. Not much was left (so visit earlier), but the pastry was delicious, gelato wonderful, and hot chocolate yummy. Cute interior, at a corner location. Sort of out of the main part of Buena Vista,...More
