“Coffee Break”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Stopped here before check in. The girl behind the counter was shy and I had to get her attention after a few minutes of her back turned to the counter. She just seemed a little checked out. The coffee was good though. I ordered a peppermint white mocha.

“Nice local coffee shop”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Wonderful atmosphere to meet up with friends or enjoy a cup of coffee and gaze at the mountains. Local coffee place (nice alternative to Starbucks). Good service and helpful when unable to decide what to try.

“Good cup of java”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Free WiFi, so we stopped to look up nearby hotels. They have their own version of Starbucks, so just ask! Good location as they are in the Rite Aid shopping center.

“First stop in town!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

After a long road trip from the SF Bay Area, I like to stop off at the Looney Bean for a mid-afternoon coffee before checking into my hotel room across the street. Not easy to see, tucked away in a corner behind a Subway sandwich shop in a strip mall, it's a comforting place to go. Smells nice, with a real "woody" feel to it like all good local coffee places. Oh, the coffee's great, the baristas are nice and there's a patio out front, too.
