Great coffee and atmosphere, with sidewalk seating in the summer. Food options are minimal. Good downtown location near shops. Music offerings at times on the weekends.

We came to this caffe for coffee primarily. The coffee was excellent. The service was good. The pastries were okay. Definitely would come back for the coffee, made a point to stop there prior to leaving town, and having some coffee to go!

Located in the CBD, it's a nice place to pop-in while you're out walking. Some outdoor bistro-style seating if you prefer to people watch, of it he weather is inclement, eat indoors at one of the big windows. They make it fun and classic "coffee house" with tasting food and entertainment on occasion.

Several times a week I order my standard espresso drink here. Either before a bike ride, or before work. They house-roast fair trade coffee in the basement and have several varieties. Espresso drinks are quite consistent and well prepared, not thrown and slopped together like you might get from Starbucks or (heaven forbid) a drive through espresso place. This is... More

They roast their own d-caf coffee on site and it is very good.They have a small selection of treats and a full line of coffee and tea beverages. The atmosphere is quite and nice except on music nights which are fun and suppose to be loud.

Coffee is consistently excellent, flax seed muffins are the best ever, and the ambiance is great! The only thing missing is a fireplace on a cold winter's day. Staff is friendly and service is great! Now to try the music and a glass of wine, can't wait!

Easily the best coffee in Wenatchee - maybe the best in eastern Washington. Micro- foam on my latte is always tops. Coffee taste is well balanced - latte art is greatly appreciated. Plenty of seating and always a warm greeting. More pastry options would be appreciated!

This is a return to the old fashioned coffee houses of yesteryear - Cozy arm chairs, live music, terrific coffee, and some tasty looking treats and meals. PS - Refills on drip is free.

I only tried the coffee, but it was delicious and had me returning for more. Try to get the tall guy with glasses and the rockin' apron for your barista, as his was the best of the bunch.
