“Best coffee in the USA ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

I was sorely disappointed with coffee in the US. However this place had some of the best coffee. I even bought some to bring back home. Loved the rustic feel of the place, the service was the best. Even got some great advice on an alternative way to get to Las Vegas. Thanks for refueling me and showing that you can find great coffee in the USA.

“Weak coffee, not impressed.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

A big empty space, not cozy. Met friends for business at 8 AM. Only one employee on duty, no coffee condiments available unless you asked for them. Pastry offerings were sparse and several days old, no other food selections available. Coffee, unfortunately was very weak. Friends have raved about this place in the past, I have never been sure why. I am sure I won't return.

“<3 <3 <3”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Best coffee I've had in a while. The vanilla latte with almond milk is phenomenal. Don't ruin it by adding sugar...the natural flavors from the espresso, vanilla and nutty zing from the almond milk is perfection...and made with a little "love".

“Amazing coffee, not what you expect in Mammoth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Coffee snobs and Europeans alike will be more than pleased at the coffee offered here. Creamy espresso, Latte Art, Cold Brew, they even offer raw milk upon request. So pleased to have this bit of culture and excellence in Mammoth!
