I had a very good iced coffee for $2.50. I listened to some excellent live music. I got excellent service. Overall, it was an excellent experience.

They don't really have a big menu, but whatever is listed there it's good. It's a great place to spend some time chatting with friends and drink some wine. The atmosphere is unique, since they usually have live music at night, and they tend to be students from the school of music from the local college. Don't expect any luxury... More

Was pleasantly surprised with the delicious coffee drink I ordered. Makes me want to return to try the rest of them. The ambience and scene is an acquired taste, but the drinks make it worth it.

I do not know if it was worth the wait............We simply ordered coffee drinks and the place was sparse. It seemed to take a good half hour before we got our coffees.

Kudos to the owners for bringing such a... More

Delicious & CREATIVE coffee & teas! A chilled ambiance filled with local art & live music every evening. They have a good selection of craft beers that ate worth trying and do try their deli styled foods! Near the back are board games you could bust out to spend some quality time with friends!

My husband understands Spanish and he really enjoyed it. After the story telling a few guys jumped on stage and played good laid back jams. El... More
