One good little spot in Moncton if you want a good coffee, this is the place to go. A lot of choices too and a small breakfast menu with some sandwichs. Nice spot!

I often come here for the chai lattee. The service is always amazing and they have so many choices of tea and accomodate dairy allergies with almond milk. The food is OK. I had the mexican salad (?) and was a little dissapointed.

We found the prices expensive for disappointing food. Our sandwiches/wraps were very basic with little flavour. I expected real turkey breast, not deli meat. The iced chai was decent but the iced hot chocolate was all ice and no chocolate.
