My cup was SO good, we have mail ordered more since returning home!!! They also have a full food menu, but I didn’t try. My coffee was take out.

Lox and bagels and a good cup of coffee by the stream; it's a nice way to start the day. Staff was very nice and our puppies had fun dancing for them. Great place to bring company for a coffee or nibble.

Love this place. Great coffee, great sandwiches, gluten-free options, Patio by the river where we can bring our dogs, Brewpub next door shares the patio but loads of space, sweets and treats with a bohemian atmosphere.

A local suggested this place to us! We had delicious coffees, and stayed to enjoy the river outback. Realized they served light lunches, and stayed for sandwiches and beers. Great old building with a ton of charm.

Kinda just passed by this place and turned around decided to drop in. I would not call this a breakfast place.... Only like 3 options for breakfast foods. Yes, there are lots of lunch options, but they don't serve those till after 11, so beware...More
