We stopped in while waiting for our tour of the former Traverse City State Asylum. I had a great bowl of squash soup and of course a cuppa joe. My husband enjoyed his sandwich. The staff was a little distant for a coffee house but they might have been busy in the back room.

Great little place for a breakfast bowl and good coffee. My kid had apple juice and a bowl as well had to pay for a refill on juice but whatever. It's Traverse City, it's to be expected.

Wife and I purchased an iced coffee and an ice tea. They were very tasty and I was actually shocked when the gentleman said the price. I asked if he rung up both. The price was so low. Great drinks for a great price. Plus the gentleman that served us was very pleasant.

Try either the Havana burrito or the In-A-Gadda bowl and you will not be disappointed!! O.J. was also wonderful!

We stopped in to refuel while looking at the State Hospital. I had a chai tea, it was good and hot, nice flavor and average price.

This is a small, out of the way restaurant that specialized in coffee, but the food was phenomenal if simple. The breakfast burritos were awesome and my wife had a bagel sandwich that was also out of this world. There are not many places you can eat for $10 for a full breakfast and coffee in Traverse City anymore, and... More

Can't say enough good things about this drive through coffee place. Consistently good and strong and always a knowledgeable staff. Even when we have good coffee available-this is always a guilty pleasure! We will drive out of our way and usually end up late to our event just get a cup!

We stopped here for lunch and ordered an Asian chicken salad and a pesto chicken panini. After what was a shockingly long wait for such a simple order, we were served what was one of the most disappointing meals I've ever had. The salad had cucumber that had clearly been frozen or that had gone off and was completely inedible,... More

I didn't know there were so many types,of coffee. Mine was a little strong (I couldn't even pronounce the name) but the barista (coffee guy to most of us) helped me through it. They could open a little earlier..I had to wait for them.
