We are so glad to read this. Our aim is to make every customer feel welcome and you could say our mantra is also quality over quantity. Better to do a few things well than to do alot just mediocre :)

This little coffee shop right across the street from our AirBnB offered excellent coffee and apple pie--just what we needed after tromping around town in the blustery autumn cold.

Fantastic coffee, far superior to all the other places we tried on our visit, and the toasted sandwiches are pretty good too. Do yourself a favour, and seek this place out - you will not be disappointed.

We stopped by here for dessert on the way home. It looked like a cool coffee shop with comfy chairs for people to hang out in. We got cookies to go and they were light and yummy.
