We love the fun, artsy atmosphere in this local coffee shop. Really like that they keep fresh roasted beans on hand especially the lower acidic varieties. We splurge from time to time on mochas and while they are mostly spot on, occasionally something goes amiss...More

They have the best coffee, great service and nice atmosphere too. It's in a great location downtown and I love that they are open late on the weekends. It's a good hang out spot for the younger, college-aged kids.

This coffee place is the best. The environment is chill and comforting. Mix-matched furniture makes it a cool place to hang out and catch up. The free wifi makes it an even better place to study. And then there's the great coffee. Wonderful!

Just the right place to go and chill and relax with a good cup of tea or coffee! I had the coffee and a jasmin tea - it was just very laid back and easy to hang out.
