Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, Violet! Our building was actually a residence before we opened a coffee shop inside. We love that it feels like a home!

My wife and I are frequenters of Agora. Great coffees and atmosphere. We sometimes sit out back when we have our dog with us. Live music on the back patio is always welcome.

This cozy little house-turned-cafe offers warmth in every way. There is art and books and fun handicrafts all over the cafe, tastefully arranged so it doesn't feel stifling or tacky. The drinks and kitchen areas make you feel at home. Highly recommend for any time...More
