Coffee fresh and hot. Had scone, totally fresh and tastey. Shopped hand made gifts, bought earrings for a gift, unique and a good price. Atmosphere sunny, colorful, super welcoming and authentic staff. Lucky to have a such a gem to go to and feel at...home and happy!More

A smaller, hometown coffee shop that attracts a nice mixture of various age groups. The owner/management has struck a good balance in making it comfortable and friendly for all. Outdoor seating is available but - depending upon time of day - it can become quite...noisy. Pricing on bakery items and coffee is a tad high but hopefully they won't increase that anytime soon.More

This is a charming coffee house, on one side having a tasteful fairly small child play area. It has good coffee (and variations) with good choice of pastries as well. More menu selections beyond baked goods! It is not a franchise and has a pleasant...hometown feel to it. Relaxing. Can get a bit busy on Saturdays after 9 am. Plan to go there again!More

I met some potential clients here for coffee as I wanted a place where it is kind of quiet and not a bar or restaurant. It was just the ticket. Plenty of parking. although I am not a shopper it looked as if they had...plenty of appealing small items. They also have an inviting front porch for those lazy summer days.More

It's an eclectic place with a cozy, comfy feel. The place definitely is not stuffy or too arranged to the point where you feel like a visitor. You feel more like a guest. And you won't feel rushed here. Grab some coffee and a sandwich....Get in some good reading!More

I ordered and enjoyed, thoroughly, the veggie quiche a few days ago. It was accompanied by dark green lettuce. I chose their vinaigrette with mustard and liked it. It's a pleasant place to be. It was not too crowded or too quiet. It's colorful and...right on Main St in a very nice little town, Verona, WI where there is a very important company, Epic. They permit outsiders to visit some of their (many) buildings and see their unusual collection of art. It's an experience, believe me. My lunch partner had the chicken salad sandwich and was not too enthused.More

This is a homey place to grab a bite to eat, read a book or check through your emails. Seems like a great place to meet your neighbors. The people were friendly and you felt right at home. Grab your own seat or a couch...and relax and enjoy a nice sandwich. The food was ok, but I'm not much into food. The atmosphere was really nice. Very homey. Come on in and warm up on a cold winter day!!More

Met a friend for a coffee and sandwich. This place is really cute with several rooms and types of seating and even som retail items. The staff was very accommodating to clean our table (place was very busy- saturday morning ), and to help us...decide what to order. They also put a lot of effort into how to serve our food for the best experience, including a nice touch of putting a soup that we wanted to share in two separate bowls for each of us. I felt cared for at this spot.More

Tuvalu is a great place meet friends or colleagues for a good cup of coffee. The comfortable atmosphere lends itself well to conversation. I like to browse the store area and typically find a unique gift.

My daughter and I went here on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. My quiche was good, and cookies and cream frappe was excellent. My daughter loved the grill marks on her grilled cheese sandwich. :o) The employees were so nice, and brought out our food...pretty quickly.More
