Passing through Tucumcari is an annual event, and was SO TICKLED to find this gem on my way to the Teepee Curio shop! Substantive Americano and grilled panini with spinach, egg, ham n egg. Clean funky aviation/Route 66 themed dining area, sweet little patio. Friendly staff and patrons, great vibe!

Excellent coffee! The service was fabulous! The staff were so friendly. Try one of the sandwiches for breakfast or lunch. Load up on a great cup of Joe and take in all Tucumcari has to offer.

I saw this place while driving by and had to give it a try. Unique like everything else on this section of Route 66. The staff was excellent and made great suggestions. I tried an iced americano with half and half and white chocolate drizzle! Would go back if in town.
