Great shop with nice decor. Offers up coffee, tap brew and great food. Inside and outside seating available. Metered parking coins only on the street. La Marzocco machines maybe a little more knowledgeable baristas but over all a nice place to visit.

We visited twice during Cherry Festival. I took advantage of the $1 daily drip, though had I been competent enough to find pour-over on the menu board, I would have explored those options. We also had a chai latte that was very good. I have...More

Hip little coffee joint on the main drag. Had a great latte and enjoyed it outside in the glorious weather watching the world go by.
