The atmosphere is casual and the coffee and food are great! You can sit and enjoy the people watching or enjoy some quite time alone or enjoy some time with friends and family.

This inviting coffee house has very nice indoor and outdoor seating and very attractive looking pastries. The coffee is good, not great. Yogurt tasted like Danon's and although the fruit was generous in portion-size, it was not very good. Husband's bagel egg and cheese was...More
