Nothing like a kickass espresso first thing in the morning with a delicious egg and ham croissant. The owner is very personable and the decor is nicely cotemporary

I usually have coffee at the other end of Jefferson, (convenient to court) but I go here occasionally for a change of pace. Every time it's a delight.
