Sogno Coffee House always puts a smile on my face whenever I stop in for coffee and a crepe. Everyone who works there is so kind and welcoming - I don't think I've ever met a friendlier coffee house staff!
The crepes are delicious - my favorite is their American crepe with bacon egg & cheese. Perfect for breakfast with friends. Their sweet dessert crepes are fantastic. The Nutella crepe is pure heaven. They are more on the expensive side, but worth every penny.
The coffee is exceptional - Whether you're ordering a cappuccino or just straight black coffee, they know how to make an excellent cup o' joe.
The place is small for the most part, but the atmosphere makes you feel at home and there is now seating available in their other restaurant in a room next door, Cafe Anello.
Love Sogno - will be back for more!

Food was tattie but it in not a place to sit and enjoy what is being served. The food is what you need to eat when its ready and there were so many friends family in the place talking it was unclear who was doing what. The wait was long and the food wasn't served to us both at the same time. They need a better location.

The crepes here are wonderful and there are many to choose from. They make a delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack and I love to get a savory one with chicken as well as a sweet crepe for dessert. Great to come to with friends and you can each get a dinner crepe and split a dessert one. All of the other baked goods are excellent as well. The croissants are to die for! The owners are wonderful people and the business is basically a family run deal. You'll always feel welcome when you go! Of course, I would be remiss to not mention the amazing coffee. They roast the beans themselves, right in the back! Their espresso is smooth and delicious. The bold and mild coffees are also unbelievable. They also have an abundance of flavors to choose from to add to your coffee/latte/cappucino. And let's not forget the frappes. Alissa (one of the owners) will make you any flavor drink you like. The choices are over the top and out of this world delicious. I love this place!

I started coming here when it opened. The freshly roasted and brewed coffee is great! The crepes are wonderful and there is an excellent selection of fillings, sweet and savory. There are specials as well (try the peach with crumbled vanilla wafers and vanilla ice cream).
The staff is friendly and accommodating.
