As baristas, we are invested in brewing coffee that showcases nature's genius and in sharing it meticulously and enthusiastically with you. As community members, we strive to forge rich connections and to provide a third place that fosters creative interaction and supports the vitality of this beautiful place. We're located in the quaint downtown historic district of Black Mountain and offer delectable homemade pastries (GF options), fresh fruit smoothies, and coffee frappes in addition to all of the traditional espresso-based beverages.

What to say? great coffees, friendly baristas, wide selection of pastries and breads and desserts - all local. Great spot for meeting friends, checking out the local board notices, wiling away an hour over a great latte.

This shop is has a wide variety of roasts, brews, teas, and pastry options. I got some type of cookie dough brownie, which was very rich and tasty. The hot chocolate was excellent too! The staff is experienced and knowledgeable about the products they offer. While in line, several patrons made special requests to recipes, which the staff appeared to enjoy making without complaining or acting as if it were an inconvenience. I also noticed most staff is on a first name basis with majority of the people coming into the shop. Several patrons seemed to be local college students studying, but the atmosphere was peaceful and quiet. Very nice pit stop or end to a long day of site seeing.

We enjoyed pastry, tea, and coffee on a rainy December Saturday. This is a place for regulars, but the staff filled in the blanks for us as we ordered. The food selection -- merely pastry -- was limited and we saw no other breakfast options in town. We were comfortable lingering as the crowd began to take shape and shops started to open.
