This coffee shop is located downtown Bowling Green and it is a favorite of my daughter's when she comes home. Treats, teas, and coffee :-)

Great location, BUT if you go for food, be prepared to be disappointed in the tiny little sandwiches and salad portions. Seriously. A $6.50 sandwich should be a lot bigger than the tiny things Mom made for your 2nd grader's lunchbox. And the pasta salad...More

When I walked in on a Wednesday afternoon and the place was jammed, I knew something was up. The place is fabulous. The best latte I have ever had. Service was excellent and very attentive. It reminded me of a scene from "Dead Poet's Society."...More

Stopped by for some morning coffee. Started out with a macchiato and two lattes, delicious. Hubby decided he wanted something, so I went back in and ordered him a chai and got a cold brew growler to go. Something happened in the communication between myself...More

Pleasantly surprised by excellent, albeit small, beer selection. Dropped in after dinner, and came back for breakfast. Nice chatting to the folks there, and felt very welcomed, even though we were just passing through.
