I'm glad I didn't read some of the previous reviews before visiting or I would've missed out! Quick, very friendly service by both employees - relaxed atmosphere - and great cup of coffee!

Great location, good atmosphere, like the porch, the coffee is just ok. They have food also which is ok. If you are staying at the Springs Resort it is just across the bridge.

The espresso is great here. The ambience is good because the patio overlooks the river and the inside space isn't bad either. But the issue is the Manager. She is somewhat rude, or there is something that she is angry about most of the time. She has her blond hair pulled back and has that face and eye look that... More

I apologize if your experience wasn't what you felt it should be. However, before you make public accusations, you should get your facts correct. The 'big fat lady' as you called her, with blonde hair, is not the manager. She is however a very kind and beautiful person who was much more patient with you than myself, the owner, would... More

Management staff very rude and unwelcoming and unhelpful. Showed up at 7:58am (doors open at 8:00am). When she opened doors at 8:05am, allowed others to step inside and make purchases; never apologized for that.

We chose this coffee shop because we were staying at the resort across the river, and there was a pedestrian bridge over the river. What a great decision! They make the usual fancy style coffees --but they also prepare wonderful coffees for those like me who drink plain black coffee every morning. My husband chose the medium breakfast roast and...

Closest thing to a Starbucks in the area.... and actually, I prefer the flavor of the coffee here over SB anyway. Small and quaint, and open early in the morning. They have your regular selection of coffees and espresso drinks, as well as a lot of bakery items (from scones to muffins, kolache to quiche by the slice.) Price was... More

Stopped for a quick coffee and snack. The medium roasted Ethiopian blend was well balanced with a hint of nuts. The banana bread was moist and super tasty.
