We popped in here on a hot day walking around window shopping. We ordered an iced chai and an iced mocha (chocolate milk for the toddler), and the staff was very quick and friendly. They made an effort to engage with the kids, which is rare nowadays, but much appreciated. Would gladly return!

A wanna-be in the Asheville pastry / dessert world. Cozy little back rooms and nice tables out front to catch the local street scene. Coffee is good.

Was looking for a special latte vs. your typical Starbucks and found it here. I will be back next time I'm in town.

Really good latte with tiramisou with fresh shot of espresso poured over it. Great place to hang out inside and out. Local favorite.

I liked the coffee and sitting in the window so we could watch the people going by. Also, their pastries are good!

This cafe is located in the heart of Asheville and offers a great location for good coffee and people watching! My iced non-fat late was amazing!

My family always have to go here as we are going to the parking garage to leave and go home. They want pastries from here to take back so the trip to Asheville keeps going on until time for dessert. Decadent pastries you will not find in most cities you visit.
