After having breakfast with bad coffee, this little place was a bit of heaven. The young man working there was extremely informational and made us a fabulous cup of coffee for the road.. even putting it in our Yeti’s for us. Highly recommend!

This is a little place to drink a good coffee relaxed and you can test some pastries too. There are high and low chairs. It’s a good place to talk and share too. I recommend this place.

I went to the other coffee stops and this place blows them away. In fact I would have to say it's the best I've ever had anywhere. I've been to MANY cities including Seattle and this place knows how to do coffee.
