Playful place with better-than-average, but not world-class espresso. Lots of choices of fattening baked goods and other breakfast items, plus all manner of "wellness" soaps and other nonsense in a coffee shop. Seems to emphasize flavored, iced, and other abstractions of the pure thing, but certainly head and shoulders better than Starmuck.

More a flavored coffee and snacks place, the espresso is better than most in the area--certainly way above Starmuck--but not world-class and a bit inconsistent.

Nice little spot to stop by for coffee with a friend. Good selection of coffee and tea drinks - nice iced tea, too. Lots of snacks, t-shirts and little gifts. Cute local spot!

This little shop is way more than a coffee shop, but not quite a full service restaurant. It's a great place to stop in for a late morning coze with a friend. The cakes and treats that they sell are delicious, and they have a full selection of coffee, tea and drinks. Gifts, too.

Great coffee, always a smile with service and fun decor. Wide and varied selection of treats and gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. Great place to sit and work - oh yeah, they have free wi-fi.

Small coffee shop with grilled cheese and snack options. I didn't try any food but ordered a vanilla chai latte which was very tasty. They have a lot of drinks to pick from. Limited seating inside but have a few outdoor seats available when it's warm outside. It seems very cluttered inside with many tshirt options and some palm trees........ More

My girlfriend and I visited for a quick lunch. We ordered grilled cheese sandwiches, which I thought were going to be great because you can customize them, and tomato soup. The grilled cheese wasn't cooked in butter it was just toasted bread with melted cheese and fillings. It was like bad college all over again. The tomato soup was not... More

Their coffee is GREAT but their sandwiches are insane! THICK CUT bread, smothered with cheese and grilled! Shut the front door! GOOEY sandwiches, evil pastries. The place is small and funky. And sticks with you!

I love it here! Up in Northborough for my sons baseball tournament. Looking for a coffee shop and boy did I find one. Smoothies, coffee, lemonades, teas, healthy bar options, breakfast sandwiches, specialty lunch sandwiches, grilled cheese, small gifts...mugs, fun shirts and more. Great shop! Coffee was great. Flavored coffee are all beans bo flavor shots.
