This place is a gem. Great local coffee shop with good food, coffee and tea options. I had the apple turnover and a black tea, both were fantastic. Only knock is the bathroom was gross.

Coffee was good and great variety but regular cup was $2.95. Breakfast sandwich bacon, egg and cheese on bagel was $7.00 and light on the bacon. Was ok but I would not return as there are many other choices in the area.
