I love this little tucked away place. Having read about it on Bill Hess's instagram feed for years, I finally stopped in and had a cup of coffee. The decor is great, and quaint without being kitschy, and the service was friendlier than most coffee huts (which is saying something, as most are pretty friendly!). Add this to your list... More

Happened to be driving by and stopped for lunch with my wife. Had some roast beef and turkey panini, soup, and Italian soda. It was all awesome (roast beef melted in my mouth!)

Sadly it just wasn't what... More

So first of all, this isn't the best place for lunch probably. But isn't a bad place for lunch. I've eaten here on many occasions and while they don't offer a lot of variety for food - the staff is always friendly and always accommodating. I like the panini's - they are quite simple, but they are good. The soups... More

My hubby and I are from Hawaii and we just wanted to relax with a great cup of coffee, locally roasted that had some nice ambiance...AND THIS WAS IT! The baristas were very sweet and friendly offering to make us any kind of coffee we could think of. We settled for simple java with a shot of espresso. Hubby's coffee... More

Its location is on secondary road, so there is not as much activity, but they do provide with great customer service, and make great coffee. They also have a big variety of different teas. there is 3 sisters by the name Kristina, Evelina, and Dana that work there, and they are always happy positive and provide with great customer service.

I adore Carmen and her girls. The coffee is wonderful and the decor is very cozy. It's a great family place where you will definitely feel welcomed.

Small Deli serving organic and locally made breads and pastries. Not much on the menu, but the soups, salads, and breads are superb.
