I love bringing my own mug and getting coffee there. But even better is buying their instant coffee and taking home a package. IT IS INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL! It's a fair price although I would like to buy a case for an even lower price. :)...More

There is a lot packed into a small space / coffee roasting, bakery and some other light foods. We stopped for an afternoon treat and chose a macaroon that literally melted in our mouths. Absolutely delicious!

CB has great coffee but this is as serious and professional buying, roasting and preparing as you will find. It is the opposite of Starbucks. The baristas take the necessary time to make the drinks correctly. So wait patiently. The food here is also excellent...More
