Apparently the owner lets kids run the place without proper training or manners. Worst service i have ever experienced. Will never return.

Stopped in on quite a chilly day the same day we were leaving town. The last time we stopped in was probably two years ago. The atmosphere is great and the coffee is delicious...we ordered some almond milk lattes and a bagel. My only complaint...More

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.

Panacea is always my go to spot for when I need a pick me up or I have a business meeting. Not only is their coffee absolutely tasty, but the atmosphere is low key and friendly. It’s a quite spacious, and yet very cozy spot...More
