“Great view on the skyline deck! check it out!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

This pitstop was a total accident by looking up in the sky over by the grove arcade and viewing people standing out on a deck. Decided to check it out on a warm saturday afternoon and was pleasantly surprised. You are actually visiting an old flatiron style building with an old fashion small elevator with an attendant. You are taken to the top floor where you are required to have a 1 drink mininum. The great treat besides the view of the mountains and a bird's eye view of the immediate downtown area is the wonderful conversation you will have with other locals/visitors who are taking a break in their busy day for a drink.

“Lovely”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Great desserts, and fun unique atmosphere. Ladies, go to the bathroom! On the way there is a fun little adventure that I never expected! Asheville is full of those :) Oh and there's neat little window seats that you can drink or eat in. And sometimes live music!

“Location, and not much else”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

The business is ideally situated - if you're strolling around the historic area, you will more than likely pass by. Interior is narrow and cramped. Wifi easy to access. I definitely paid too much for a mouthful of coffee, which was nothing special. It is unlikely that I would return to this coffee shop.

“Okay but not Great”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

I take my espresso seriously and was really disappointed to get my single shot served in a paper cup. The servers weren't especially attentive, which wouldn't have bothered me if the product were better. I'm still in town for a few days and will keep looking.
