Average high end coffee shop. Food is ok. Coffee is ok and a little overpriced. You have to add your milk, sugar, or other items to your own coffee. The bathrooms and main area aren't anything special to look at.

Wonder little coffee shop! Hot or cold drinks.They have them. Stop by and try one of their desserts or a sandwich. Read the paper or visit with friends. I have been here on several occasions and enjoyed the experience.

We visited last week. Taking refuge from the cold to grab a cup of java. The coffee tasted like it had been made many hours prior. In fact, as soon as my hands were warm, I tossed the full cup. Fresh is always better.

Now that Nourish is closed we thought we'd give this place a try. It's very good! Sandwiches, wraps and a couple of salads to choose from. We'll be back!
