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.

Definitely my favorite place to go in town. (Just moved to Biddeford not long ago.) The already cool atmosphere is just enhanced by the relaxed tunes and interesting local art on the walls. From the books to the craft brews to the coffee and variety...More
