My friend and I visited this coffee shop when we needed a break from walking around the Uptown Art Fair. What a great choice! The interior has comfortable seating, while there are also outdoor options. The area for ordering and serving the drinks is particularly...More

Wow, one of the best Chai Teas I have had in a long time. Spent the morning on the front porch people watching with my daughter and drinking Chai. I recommend this place for people watching and relaxing.

This is a fabulous place for a quiet morning conversation & chai or coffee with a friend. We also had a molasses cookie which was so yummy!

This coffee house’s first crime is their misleading website: WHAT ‘elegant 1870’s Victorian mansion!?‘ This is just an old, unattractive, grey house off Hennepin, with very small rooms and too many mismatched tables & chairs shoved into them. WHAT parking? Its handful of parking spots...More
