We stopped late morning and the place was very busy. The staff was friendly and we placed our order quickly. One latte, one regular coffee and one breakfast burrito, the cookies looked so good, we opted for two of them while still sipping our coffee....More

Nice little place in Ely for early morning coffee. Nice pastries and breakfast sandwiches as well as several quiches. Sit on the front porch or inside. Friendly staff and barista.

Cute front porch to sit and drink coffee on the main street, otherwise not much to distinguish it from any other small town coffee shop. Didn't have too much to offer to go with the coffee, such as cookies, etc. Probably won't go back.

Love the coffee, tea, and food! (And miscellaneous gift items.) Cozy and pleasant space. Great for a quick stop in, or sit and stay a spell, inside or outside on the porch or back patio. The Americano is always my favorite, whether it is half-caf...More

This spot has ice cream, coffee, tea, desserts, and quiche. The quiche is really good. This was a great spot to come and sit to plan our shopping route in Ely.

It was like walking into someone's warm, welcoming kitchen. Lots of variety in both food and beverage when we stopped there for coffee one morning. We will certainly be going back to sample what looked to be some fabulous quiche in the display case!

Stopped in for coffee and picked up a chicken salad wrap to go. Mmm.. They use Ghirardelli chocolate syrup for their mochas. Wrap was fresh and homemade. Bakery items and cheesecake looked delicious, but we didn't try any.
