Nice little place with it's own character. The coffee is good and so is areas to relax and enjoy. There are two gas fire pits outside that are perfect for the cooler nights. Service was friendly and fast.

Place has a cool environment with great flavored coffee drinks. But it has surprisingly good food. We had the breakfast bagel sandwich and the backyard club and both were really good.

OMG the breakfast there was truly excellent. I was at awe when I ate there. The variety of food there was enormous. So much food to choose from, I wanted to try so much of it. But what I had was good regardless.

A fun coffee house, especially when the entertainment is going, mostly weekends. Plenty of drink choices and some food items that are interesting.
