I'm a local, so with all the chooses, you know this place has to be good. Along with great coffee, healthy breakfasts and lunches, there is an art gallery, which features local artists and craftsman. There is a lot of unique pieces that will catch your eye. There are homemade pastries, with the finest, premium ingredients. The baklava is my favorite, but it's honestly hard to pick a favorite. The owners will ready and willing to answer any questions about allergies, and will made to order. Don't take my word for it, see for yourself. You'll be back again and again also.

I live close by and am glad that they opened this cafe, and that it has done well. Great place for coffee and to just hangout. Sitting inside or outside you can't go wrong. I mostly have ordered drinks here and they are always good. The few times I have had a pastry, they have been tasty as well. I have also experienced some of their live music, and it really adds to the already cool atmosphere. The staff is always friendly, and the rewards club program is pretty cool.

If you live nearby you should definitely support this locally owned business. If you just happen to be close by than stop on in.

This is a great little place for unique sandwiches, soups, pastries and many other goodies. It is hard to decide to eat inside or outside....the outside seating is really nice and peaceful while the inside is such a treat with exceptional artwork of all types. You will not be able to resist getting out of your seat to check everything out....go up stairs too! Free live music at least one or two evenings a week!
