Sharing a space inside an office building this is the best of both worlds. Convenient and well appointed. Great parking, wonderful service geared to take aways. Grilled sandwiches, soup , salads, a large selection of beverages. All tasty and fresh.

In town on business just for the day. Grabbed a cup of joe before heading upstairs for a meeting. Staff was excellent! Coffee was good. Quirky, eclectic sort of shop. Baked goods and interesting beverage selection. Sat by the window. Employees VERY friendly. Highly recommend.

This place is really over-rated. No waiters, average food and noisy. Lots of people like it, but I really expect more than most people for the amount of money paid.
