We ordered a coffee latte, re-made and still bad, a slice of tiny quiche and literally a few potato chips, cookies and a slice of orange creme cake/bread/? All but the quiche was thrown away. I love to support cute little places, but it won't...be this one again. Our order was just awful. Go somewhere else.More

What are you looking for when you come to a place like this? The store is cute, the kind of place you could chill out in for hours without realizing it. Adorable little gift shop, atmosphere is top-notch. Even the outdoor patio tables are situated...in nice spots and definitely somewhere easy to relax in. But the cafe itself? When you’re not fixated on the fact that the workers treat you like garbage that they don’t want to be around, you’re fixated on the disgusting mess that they serve you disguised as “coffee.” I mean seriously. Their prices aren’t horrible for espresso beverages, but they taste like a chain smoker hocked a loogie full of dip into them before serving them to you. My girlfriend’s exact description of her iced coconut latte: “tastes like mine has extra cigarette butts in it; don’t remember asking for those.” As someone who’s made a TON of espresso-based drinks before, it’s NOT THAT HARD. I don’t understand what the problem is, why are these drinks so terrible? And why do people like them so much? I guess the first step towards solving an issue like this is to hire workers who don’t act like your business is inconvenient and unwanted to them and then treat you like crap for giving them revenue. They ignore everything you say, and believe me, me and my mom and girlfriend were NOTHING but extremely nice the whole time. This was completely unwarranted and hiring people like this is a good way to destroy your business. This was an absolute one-star experience in 99% of situations, I only give it two because their store was legitimately that adorable. Not worth the $15 for 3 drinks that were 80% poured down the drain though. Guess I’ll stick to Starbucks next time, my mistake for wanting to support local business!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

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
