The cappuccinos were on par and the homemade enchiladas were fantastic. If you have the dog with you they have a giving post out front for the canines and a water bowl. Overall it's a real good spot.

Stopped in for a mocha during a brief thunderstorm. Beverage was great, but they were closing early and we had to leave less than 10 min after walking in the door!

Very cool coffee shop just east of downtown. Easy and free street parking and nice views from the hilltop. Coffee was awesome and service friendly. They had benches out front for street watching as well. Also, free wifi with no password hassle.
