Nice little bistro with good vegetarian options The atmosphere was okay but surprised about the empty display cases where you think they would have pastries. Otherwise, my veggie wrap was good and prices were reasonable.

This destination is a great downtown neighborhood location. Artists share their works on the walls, fresh roasted coffee is available, and you will see a little of everyone come in and out through the day. Watch your step, the wood floors are old and charming....More

Comfortable coffee house. Staff has typically been excellent and responsive. During peak times, the kitchen can get backed up but this has not ever affected the quality of the food that comes out of it. It's all good.

We knew very little about Brookings and found this spot by chance when seeking out breakfast on a Sunday morning. Counter service, friendly staff. A nice start to the day.

It's really difficult to keep me out of Cottonwood - the drinks are amazing, the people are friendly and the food is delicious. I had the grilled cheese and it was AMAZING!

The service was very poor. The barista did not ask me what I wanted. He just stood there and gawked at me. I liked the coffee I ordered, but it took a very long time to make even though it wasn't busy.

Stopped and had breakfast. Everything was fine except for the bacon. Overlooked in the microwave. Very surprised it was put on my plate and serve.

Stopped in for an early cup of coffee and to read the paper. Very good coffee and a nice atmosphere to relax in while I sipped y cup. Only one barista on duty but she was excellent at multitasking.
