This place is extremely small, so you won’t find a ton of room for friends. But that’s okay, just pick a single person and you’ll have a fantastic couple coffee in a local place that knows exactly what they’re doing!

The coffee is excellent but the service is terrible. I have been here a few times, but I didn't get a good service. The bartender was very friendly to people he knew but not to me. I will not come here again, I don't want...More

Well Erik, for starters, I am actually not a bartender -- you're referencing me as such is probably at least slightly indicative of your personal experience at my coffee shop. Anyway, as a BARISTA, it is a moment by moment, day by day challenge dealing...More

My husband and I stopped by to get coffee to fuel our drive to Santa Fe. I went with a latte, and he ordered an iced coffee. Both tasted wonderful. However, it was Greg's genuine interest in ensuring our order was the way we wanted...More

As a java aficionada, and after reading numerous glowing reviews, I must admit I was quite excited to check out this place. The Americano is not only my go-to drink but my initial test and litmus test at a coffeehouse. Did not care for it,...More

So terribly sorry dear "aficionada"/ A M, that your experience was so mediocre! In a few decades with continued persistence on my part, I hope to scratch my way to a slightly more acceptable level in your extremely qualified, highly discerning, palate. An americano as...More

Tiny place with great coffee. Owner and apparently the only employee is super personable, and always tells you to let him know if you don’t like the coffee, he’ll make you something different. But of course, your coffee is always perfect.
