Have visited TR previously for coffee but not for food. Pananni was very good. Doesn't have a written food menu which is a bit unusual. Coffee was fine but not a place I would, personally, be a regular customer.

We were passing through while driving across country and stopped in for a coffee and sandwich and what we got was a little bit of old fashioned quiet bliss - with coffee and sandwiches. Thank you for a great little break and live harp music.

This is a quaint coffee shop on lakeshore drive. They have a great view of the water (although it is across the road). The inside is decorated with local artists' work which is available to purchase.

Not only is the coffee unique, the treats are wonderful too. But the best part of a coffee shop is the people that come in and visit with a newcomer! Just like a small town needs to be. Keep it up Ashland!

Had coffee and a scone like pastry for breakfast. The coffee was just a small cup for $2 and the scone was $3. I guess these prices are in keeping with a tourist area but far more than I am accustomed to paying. Will try the Ashland Bakery if I ever go back there.

Enjoyed a nice light lunch with a colleague. Coffee was ok. Coffee air pumps immediately turn me off. Located in a cool older house off the highway. Easy to miss. Worth a stop.

Friendly place where often everyone sits together and chats. Good coffee, decent sandwiches. Warm place out of the winter.
