What a cool place! We were passing thru and wanted a coffee and some breakfast. What a wonderful surprise. The food was super good. The coffee selection was outstanding. Especially the sugar-free options, as well as alternative milk & gluten free choices, was fantastic. So...great full for places like this have options for those of us who need them. The staff was super friendly. The place is very clean. And they have a covered outdoor patio that’s pet friendly. Which is awesome!!! This is a must stop every time we come to Livingston for us.More

Love this place and the story behind it. First came here on a cold, rainy day in January. Their hot Chai Tea Latte was the best I’ve ever had and at a reasonable price. The staff was warm, helpful and welcoming. I’ll be coming here...again and again!!More

We loved this place! The coffee, quiche, smoothies and muffins were delicious. We camp often at Lake Livingston so we are so happy to have discovered this little jewel.

Really cute coffee place with a very sweet story behind it. Make sure you read their story on the wall about how the cafe came to be! The employees were super friendly and welcoming. Definitely give this place your business.

Very good southern cooking, chicken fried catfish was good, but a little too much mayonnaise in the slaw.

I live in the area and love the opportunity to go through the drive thru and get great Frappuccinos. They also have a very friendly staff should you choose to go in and sit to enjoy your drinks.

Excellent smoothies, super friendly and knowledgeable staff every time we’ve been there. Service is also pretty quick every time. Drive thru is great for when we don’t have a lot of time but still want our smoothie fix! Atmosphere inside is relaxed and everything looks...really well kept. We have tried several different smoothies and really enjoyed every single one. We love coming here!!More

Found this place on Trip Advisor while searching places that have cappuccino. So my mom and I went here this morning for a quiche and cappuccino. Glad we did. Quiche was great tasting and cappuccino was awesome and hit the spot. Once again Trip Advisor...was spot on with its recommendation.More
