We visited at the peak of lunch rush on Sunday and got seated immediately. The menu looks fairly simple, but loaded with items that look appealing for both breakfast and lunch and are not the usual fare you find. The atmosphere is a bit "hippy-ish" with the barista wearing dreadlocks and most everybody seeming to be of the organic persuasion overall...but that seems to be part of the appeal. We had the Zola Burger and Chicken Pannini and were quite happy with both items in taste and portion. The latte could have been a little hotter though...it seemed to range in the 140 degree temperature when it should be 160-170. I will note that to make sure I ask to have extra hot next time...but taste and froth was done well enough. My only comments is that the dread-lock barista should be wearing a hair net and stop touching his hair all the time. Seriously....wash it or something or cut them off if you can't wear a hat or hair net. It is a little noisy with nearly every surface a hard surface that doesn't absorb noise...they really need something to diffuse it a bit. It is in the older part of Frederick downtown area, so it is an older building and not all shiny new. Lastly, there is a selection of flavored liquors on the wall that are naturally infused with all sorts of tasty looking flavors (garlic Vodka?) I didn't try them, but might next time if it weren't mid day. Overall, this is a very good place with a good vibe...just work on the hair thing...and maybe take a bit more time cleaning the restrooms to earn the next higher rating.
