“Best place in town!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Prices seem a tad high at first, but the quality and flavor of the bakery items is well worth it, tried many of them over the years and have always been very pleased. Plus! They were able to make me my own custom iced coffee drink which I used to order from my favorite coffee place in Houghton, that I cant find on the menu and cant get made any other place in town. Thumbs up for that! One suggestion would be to get a faster and more stable wifi connection....I kept getting disconnected and there was only 2 other people (that I could see) using the wifi.

“if you like your food served on/in take out containers you'll love this place...”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

though there are the oldest coffee shop in town, since '98, they serve all/most of their food in foam/plastic/take out containers, even if you are eating there...hate that...such a waste and not very conscious...they do have good selection of coffee's, duh, but the rest just turns me off...

“Nice modern coffee oasis”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is a nice, clean "urban" coffee place with outside seating and ample parking, downtown Iron Mountain, just off the main drag. They have a good, appealing selection of wraps, sandwiches and coffee. The Quiche was delicious. If you are looking for greasy diner style breakfasts, go someplace else. A recommended, unexpected oasis.

“One Stop is More than Enough”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

A snob restaurant - excellent if you're looking to buy Quiche, but if you're expecting to see normal menu items, forget it. The staff is a matching set when it comes to snobbery and will Not make you feel welcome. There's Many more desirable restaurants nearby to choose from, and they won't charge you a fortune-unlike This place.

“Great Place”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Their special coffees and sweets are the best in town. You can also find very nice luncheon items - without spending a fortune.
