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!!

Stumbled upon this place looking for coffee. Discovered they make gluten and dairy crepes (stop the madness! ). And boy was it tasty. They even customized my order. My cap was delish (speaks volumes considering I am a coffee snob). Disappointed they didn't offer pastries...More
