We visited daily while in town. The coffee, tea, and baked goods were delicious. The staff were friendly. Definitely recommended for great coffee or a place to hang out and enjoy.

My friends and I enjoyed delicious sandwiches (hearty, healthy), tasty soup, and great salads (crisp, loaded with veggies besides lettuce). Service was prompt and friendly. The only drawback: noise of "background" music and other diners' conversations.

Breakfast items we tried included the wild mushroom omelette, ham & egg croissant sandwich, blueberry muffin, a latte and a regular black coffee (some kind of medium blend). Everything was tasty and fresh. I highly recommend this spot
