“$1.95 coffee refill”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Things were going pretty well until I got my refill. I had a breakfast wrap which was pretty good. Wi-Fi stuttered a little but basically worked well. It's a cute place in a nice location in downtown Rockland. Staff was friendly though it seemed a little slow. There was a long line when I got there at 8 a.m. on Saturday however it didn't get that way again while I was there. The coffee was served in an average sized mug and most places I go would give you a refill. Starbucks charges 50 cents.

“Place for a bite, a book and a beer (or coffee)”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Came in to see a Bluegrass band and grabbed a bear and a grilled cheese. Great vibe in this place and the food and beer was great. I didn't get back to the bookstore, it looked on the small side but I still love the pairing of cafe/bookstore. Definitely a great place to take some time for yourself or to meet a friend or two. Try the grilled cheese - you won't be dissappointed!!!

“Too Slow”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

As one other reviewer put it, "Great food, bland service." Consistently slow. I no longer consider this and option for my lunch hour. Even when they are not busy, they tend to be slow.
