Long ago I recommended they try LaVazza which in my opinion if fresh and made right beats Starbucks by a mile. Definitely it makes the best espresso! They took my advice but for some reason they do not feature it... More

A great location, good service and a nice cuppa tea! In the midst of busy Royal Oak, there's parking behind the store.

Had to try it out while we were in the area after hearing it was one of the best coffee shops in the state. It was very good coffee. Definitely not the commercialized style. Very authentic. Nice large place with many different types of seating areas including minimal outdoor seating depending on what you want to do while enjoying your... More

Good place to be with friends, comfortable and warm, without the complications of Starbucks. I don't have a favorite drink there but I try whatever I feel for and I'm usually satisfied.

I love the relaxed atmosphere. It doesn't feel as stuffy or contrived as Starbucks. I love their blue and yellow tea, makes me feel warm and calm every time.
