Got a smoothie here on Saturday and as always their service was fast and friendly. I always enjoy going to our monthly gatherings there as they treat their customers well.

Very "in" coffee bar, also serving breakfast and lunch. Gathering place for small meetings, meeting old friends and making new ones. Nice selection of sandwiches and specialties as well as wonderful hot and cold drinks and deserts and bakery treats

I was initially pleased to find a local coffee shop as I traveled through Mattoon, and both the location and the ambiance were nice. The layout of the counter is less-than-desireable: I had to walk way to the hidden back counter to order and then...More
