“Decent coffee drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

The coffee is good, the baristas are nice and the location is convenient in Carlsbad Village. But it's nothing super special. On the weekends, the music from the bar downstairs is either a fun addition to the ambience or very annoying depending on the band playing.

“Used to be good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

The servers are a little rude and the owner never has a smile on his face. The coffee is good, as is the food albeit a little overpriced. What kills it for me is the service.

“#1 Coffee Shop in Carlsbad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

This coffee shop has indoor or outdoor seating. The service is reliable and very friendly. I loved the 2nd floor view and the artwork on display. The coffee was as lovely as the service. If you are in search of a great cup of coffee then this is the place.
