I highly recommend this place, they roast their own coffee and it is great, you don't see this in area anymore after invasion of corporate coffee shops.
Their breakfast is excellent with great pricing.
If you are in the area don't miss it.

It is fantastic place for Coffee, Breakfast and lunch. I was surprised to see they roast their own coffee, you don't see this type of operation around these days.
I look at the coffee been and they were all good and nicely roasted. I met the owner, his name is Kevin and nice guy.
They make they own pastries their and nicely backed croissants and scones. We got there for light breakfast and after I saw few dishes end up ordering the full breakfast. The quality was good and and really enjoyed it. The price and portion was excellent. I sendup going back next day for lunch. Wow !!! good presentation for the money you spend with side salad (free) and fresh made sandwiches.
I continue going there 2-3 times a week and quality is the same. Have fun and enjoy it.

Parking is a bit of a problem but after that it's a delight. There is a full complement of coffee choices and desserts not to mention sandwiches. The staff is efficient, helpful and friendly.

Decided to try this place on Sat. morning instead of our usual Startbucks down the street.
The menu looks extensive as they carry the usual items, as well as smoothies and juice bar (didn't get a chance to try though).
Ordered mocha with lox omelette. Mocha was excellent, by far the best I have tried and WAY better than starbucks. It comes in a large cup, with real whipped cream. The cost is about the same as starbucks. The lox omelette was a piece of salmon with scrambled eggs. It was average.
It gets crowded on weekends with long lines, and can be a bit loud. They also have wifi.
