Awesome shop with local coffees and lot of unique crafts that make it ideal for gifts. Prices are fair and easy to see the art and crafts are truly authentic.

Great stop for unique gifts and not all of the typical souvenirs you find in all the other shops. Who doesn't want gifts that say Fruity Monkey Poop?

Yes, it's true we are a small to-go coffee shop and we sell some cool gifts as well. While there are cheaper coffees at the supermarket (and some more expensive), we provide a different coffee experience. We know the farmers that grow the coffee and...More
