Good coffee and eats, but the service was poor and prices were rather high given portion sizes. Would hesitate to make a special trip.

Stopped in because of the Tripadvisor decal on the door Really warm good morning from the barista, however I have to agree w another reviewer. Price is a bit steep and can't say the coffee warranted the price. Next time I'll probably go across the street for my latte.

They roast their own coffee beans... Stronger flavor... NICE and not so busy with university kids on wifi at Starbucks

This café offers one brewed coffee (house blend). This blend has been the same for many years. It is watery, lean and possesses a consistent off flavor, as if diluted by apple juice. No other choice exists. I have a wide coffee tolerance and find it repulsive. I'd prefer convenience store coffee if given a choice. The prices are WAY... More

The inside could use a little touching up, but it was the perfect place to stop in for a cup of hot coco on a cold day! The guy working there was also super nice!

Excellent lattes and assorted coffee drinks. Much better than any of the dozens of chain coffee places around town. Will return.

I think that it is worth it to support a local business. The service is always great and I think their lattes are the best in town. I wish they would work on their pastry offerings as they never look appetizing.
