Friendly staff. Sharp interior. Ordered 2 coffees. Both were hot and perfect flavor. Speed seemed great. Just what we needed that afternoon after 3 long days of travel.

I am somewhat of a coffee snob and I enjoyed this coffee. The outdoor/ indoor seating was plentiful. I had to run next door to Safeway to buy myself some gluten free soy free food. If you do not have food allergies, the breakfast choices ranged from great looking pastries and quiches to breakfast burritos.

The coffees rate right up there with more well known coffee establishments. They offer a good selection of pastries and freshly made sandwiches to go with you coffee. Staff is always friendly and very responsive.

They are very tasty and very rich. The breakfast selections are minimal with burritos with egg options and a few other choices. The pastries are okay. I'm a baker by... More

I have struggled with coffees ever since I moved to Europe for 5 years and then moved back to the US. One of the employees at this facility actually made me a typical european coffee and it was delicious.

We were here after spending the morning at Cheyenne Mt State Park. It was on the way home. They have a fairly limited breakfast menu but the food was good. They have a wider selection of lunch sandwiches. Of course they have a large selection of coffee. The setting is nice. There is seating inside and outside. The staff are... More
