Since we do not have a Starbucks in town, this is the answer! The place can get crazy with business, but worth the wait. Beautiful rich tasting coffee.

We ate here for breakfast since we had vouchers from our lodging. We enjoyed the blueberry muffins, kolaches and coffee. Delicious!

The atmosphere was cozy but the service was slow; not irritatingly slow but longer than you would expect for two sandwiches and three lemonades. The lemonades were very refreshing and the buns, tomato and lettuce for the grilled chicken sandwich were fresh. The only knock on the food was how tough the chicken in the sandwich was.

We took a small break from shopping and sipped on some beverages - iced tea, iced chai, iced coffee. Oh yeah, they have hot coffee, capuccino, chai, cocoa, etc.

We stop by every afternoonw we're in town for a copy of coffee. I love getting their basic coffee and then adding about 1/3 of the Texas Pecan. Tastes great!

Best Chai I have had in a while. One of my two regular spots for coffee or chai when I am too lazy to brew at home.
