A nice local hangout in Biddeford. The hot and iced coffees are tasty and the tap offerings look to be of a good variety. Offers music on the weekend.

Stopped in with a friend for an afternoon tea and a snack. The ginger tea was awesome. Nice tasting hummus platter. We have been in to have a glas of wine on another occasion. Always friendly staff. Cool and relaxed atmosphere.
