Great coffee and lots of delicious food to go with it. The atmosphere is relaxed and if you can't find a seat, all you have to do is ask someone at a table and most likely they'll let you join them.

I came in here for a late breakfast and had a pot of tea and a cranberry ciabatta. Both excellent, and the staff were super friendly. They have a good selection of loose leaf tea and a fine selection of both baked goods and regular food. One oddity of the visit - it would appear they were filming The Bachelor... More

Food is very good, Staff is very friendly. We go there frequently for the live music they have. I will support a business that supports local musicians.

Took the granddaughter there for cocoa and cinnamon bun. Ladies at the counter were patient and helpful to her when she wasn't sure what treat to pick. Granddaughter said the bun was "The best!" and cocoa was excellent. My coffee was good, no burnt or bitter flavor like Starb**k's. That morning we had other places to go and couldn't finish... More

Love the atmosphere, but the food was tasteless and over-priced. I was so surprised to pay over $26 for two sandwiches, two bags of chips and two iced-teas for lunch. I also dislike it when I'm asked to tip at the register by the person that is taking my order. If you are running a restaurant where you order at... More

So in full disclosure, I am friends with the owners of this cafe. I ate here with a group of friends from work. The food was exceptional and beyond just your normal choices for sandwiches. I had an ambrosia chicken salad sandwich. It tasted great. The portion size wasn't giant, but it was sufficient and I followed it up with... More

The coffee is robust in flavor so state your preferences in strength when you order. They also give to charity on certain days. Lots of room to sit and enjoy.

If you're looking for a place to get a great coffee or hot chocolate drink, the Steaming Cup is your place! We love their coffee and they have a great lunch menu with unique sandwiches and bakery. Come for the coffee, stay for the great atmosphere with live entertainment on certain nights.
