This was mediocre coffee at best. We didn't try anything else but had just bought and thrown away coffee from Sacred Grounds, so we tried this instead. It was better, but not great. I like bold coffee (think Daz Bog KGBlend) and this didn't cut...More

I don't usually like to do negative reviews but people need to be aware of some things about this place. We were very disappointed with this place - it should say coffee shop not cafe. The two staff members in front were friendly - but...More

Although the service was good, the coffee and food were subpar. The avocado toast was non toasted bread and very bland. Wouldn't revisit.

DON’T GO HERE!! The food was less then mediocre, the owner didn’t say thank you when paid, how the gumbo was “award winning” is beyond us. Asked them to turn down the music, and they turned it up. We won’t be back! Definitely don’t go!

Went here for a morning coffee and a homemade cinnamon scroll. It was very yummy and the coffee was good. We were so impressed that we went back for a homemade lunch of muffaletta’s. Exceptional!

I like going there to treat myself for breakfast every so often. They have really good Chai and quiches and some are gluten-free. I love the local art on the walls!
