My husband and I stopped in here yesterday. I ordered a hot chai, and he got coffee. His coffee was good . The chai was a bit watery tasting, but some may prefer that, and it may not always be that way. I also tried...More

We wanted to find a place to get coffee before we left town. Glad we discovered this place. Had great coffee and scones. Go to the back room and sit on the stools and enjoy the beautiful view. Go outside and listen to the river...More

This bakery has good espresso but only so-so service. The barista who made my drink might have just been having an off day - who knows. The person who took my order didn’t seem too thrilled to be working. Plenty of seating throughout the place...More

The food is very good. No doubt the best bakery in town as witnessed by the crowds. Go early and be prepared to wait. Their breakfast sandwiches must be very good but we would not know as even when we got there at 830AM they...More

It is located on the main street and by the river. It is also close to the museum. Very nice and friendly staff.

We were heading out to hike and wanted something fast and filling-had read this was a good place-they make breakfast sandwiches ahead of the rush-very smart-they were out of our 1'st choice but we still an excellent selection to choose from.

Winthrop is a small town with limited options. The Blueberry muffins and coffee were good. The herbal tea was good but there are limited options.

We were visiting Winthrop for a long weekend and tried out all the coffee shops. Rocking Horse was our favorite. In addition to coffee, they have a few options for food too. Right downtown on the main street.

I have visited this bakery every time I go to Winthrop. The staff is always pleasant and they have a wide variety of pastries and coffee. The espresso is bold, pretty and taste great. Parking is limited and the later you get there the less...More

Decent food, below average coffee. The decor was cute. Quiche Lorraine was good and my husband's cinnamon roll was great.More
