A hole-in-the-wall place redolent of the fragrance of freshly brewed coffee. Charming South African proprietor. House-made quiches are excellent, with flaky crusts that have never seen a microwave. Smoothies good too. Sandwiches a bit disappointing.

Went here for coffee everyday. The man behind the counter from South Africa was very helpful and knew everyone who came in! Made the BEST Mochas!

You may have to wait a few minutes if it's crowded, but they serve good coffee, cappacino, and expresso.. in a very conveniant location.

If you're looking for soy milk in the south this is your spot. Super nice guys with good stories! We went back multiple times on our trip.
