We stopped in for some smoothies and iced coffee on our walk and they weren't bad, but definitely not great smoothies! I would not get them again and the service was quick, but not friendly at all.

A favorite of ours in the past. Now we are dusappointed. Two days in a row our order was taken inaccurately. Also had coffee with many grounds. It is not the same place.

Great coffee and nice little coffee shop off the main drag. Very comfortable little place to sit and relax and get out of the sun.

We came here twice for breakfast, and would be here everyday if we could! The coffee is terrific, the breakfast sandwiches are freshly made with high quality ingredients. We sampled the smoked salmon, the veggie with eggs, and the one with spinach and fantastic fresh mozzarella. Great vibe, interesting and fun artwork for sale.

We got sandwiches to go from this delightful little restaurant. There are only a few tables to eat in, but the food is great. I got a caper see panini, delicious. My husband got a tuna salad on toasted whole wheat. They were both fresh and large.

I stopped in here this week for the first time. Though bustling, service was excellent, the coffee was fabulous and though I passed there were lots of great looking goodies on display. There was lots of seating available though it appeared much business was take out. THe furnishings were comfortable. I expect to become a regular!

I've been here a few times. The coffee is really good and the people are always very friendly. A really pleasant way to start the day!
