Tired from touring the city? Enjoy wonderful coffee and pastry there. Sitting outside is a possibility. We marveled at their pastries, and especially their cakes - and their coffee drinks are fabulous!

Stopped here mid-afternoon for some tea and coffee - good selection of choices. Although we didn't sample any, there were a lot of tasty-looking baked goods. Very relaxing sitting outside with our drinks and doing some people-watching.

Had the tarragon chicken salad on a croissant and coffee...anything special, no, not really. Good though, but not noteworthy in any way...croissant not flaky nor buttery, chicken salad rather blah and too much greens...might have been nice to have a tomato, but they didn't ask...More

Was looking for a really good coffee shop close to the Capitol and this is the place. The baked goods were fresh, the staff awesome and the coffee was great. Highly recommend over Starbucks!

The coffee and treats at Firehook look swell, but fall short on taste and style. The service is fine and the prices are correct, but you can do better. Just look around!

This Firehook used to be delicious and worthwhile. There was a fire in the restaurant above this Firehook, so they closed for three months. Upon reopening, the quality of the products (especially the coffee) was much lower. I have gotten coffee two times here since...More
