When you've had no sleep, you need to stick to your principles..... #1 Local businesses are worth supporting, and this little gem is a modern and comfortable space. My coffee was as good as a Starbucks offering and service was cheerful. Will be going back...More

Dropped in for an coffee and opted to have a breakfast sandwich. Really glad I did. Excellent sandwich , fluffy eggs and bacon on a panini coupled with an excellent Americano ! Delightful discussion with a gentleman with his Sheltie. Very good ambiance

That is so unfortunate. Our staff has been trained to let you take your French Press to your seat so you have optimal control over the steeping. Apologies! Back to the training!

This is the place to stop for a real coffee in town often crowded with locals who know what they like. Handmade not machine poured

Everything good takes a bit long. Sometimes too too long, but it is happening and you will be able to sit again in even greater comfort.

Dropped into Java Moose in between meetings and had a delicious latte. It was creamy, hot and really tastey. Great little spot to sit and enjoy a beverage.

Their coffees are a step above all others. Friends that visit from out of town are blown away. Staff is very friendly and takes the extra effort to talk and get to know their customers. This isn't your typical chain coffee shop.
