“If I had a coffee house, it would look just like this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

The coffees and atmosphere (I didn't try the food yet) in this lovely place make it among my favorite destinations anywhere, and that is saying something! Original art for sale, a folky-rock music playlist that could be my own and a spacious place to hang out and enjoy it all! I love the exposed brick and original wood floors in this historic-feeling place. Apparently it might take a bit of time to get a food order but that shouldn't be an issue for quality and care in preparation. In any season, I would highly recommend you look for this gem. (You won't miss Starbucks!) The doorway is a bit tricky to find on Front St. but it is right across from a municipal parking lot. Also stick your head into Loon Landing nearby for cute souvenirs - it's better than the shops on the main street.

“A Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

I love this place! It is truly a hometown cafe....all the food is hand prepared and it can sometimes take awhile,but it is well worth the wait. A coffee/ cafe shop should never be somewhere you hurry in and out of....the owners support the local artists, beautiful paintings! Why buy stock prints when you can own an original oil/ watercolor? Absolutely nothing negative going on here....a true gem

“Great Find”

What a great place to stop for some coffee and great made from scratch breakfast. Yes you will need to wait, but that just gives you more time to relax and enjoy the atmosphere!

“A great cup of coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

A warm friendly place to meet friends for a cup of coffer. Try their breakfast egg sandwich. You will never go back to McDonalds.
