Stopped here because we had a $5 gift card from the hotel located in the same building. It was enough to get a coffee and a scone. The food was fine, nothing exceptional but certainly average or better. Service was okay.

Good coffee menu and quick friendly service. I was expecting fresh sandwiches but they are prepared, wrapped and displayed in a cooler.

This is a locally owned coffee shop attached to a very highly rated hotel. Their coffee is outstanding and the morning snakes are locally prepared. The owner and wife are very present.

Great place to get coffee and advise for local activities. Met some nice locals with their 7th generation grandchildren!

Nice to find a little local coffee shop, open early right in our hotel. The first thing I want in morning is my coffee. Great, convenient and young lady working at 6 am was very nice (very early).

After reading the reviews my wife and I wanted to stop in. She was a little hesitant at first because a coffee shop in a hotel doesn't seem like a place we'd normally visit. I ordered a drip coffee and she had a latte. The coffee was good but didn't "wow" us. The pastries were really good. We purchased a... More

After a good night's sleep at the City Loft Hotel, a walk to the edge of the building to the cafe is relaxing. My family and I enjoyed our breakfast sandwiches and coffee. While we had to take our order on the road, we enjoyed every bite and sip! Comfortable seating area, clean facility, and courteous staff in a beautiful... More
