Wow I love this place so much. This coffee shop doesnt have a pompous feel like so many coffee shops have. They are always super friendly here and the gelato is honestly the most authentic gelato you will get on this side of the world....More

Ideal little neighborhood coffee shop with a variety of pastries, cookies and ice cream. I had a smoked turkey Panini on homemade bread that was fantastic. As was the soup of the day.

As soon as I walked into the shop, I said "It's cold!" The barista agreed. What she should have done was said there is no heat! It was colder inside than it was outside. Even with our hot coffees and keeping our coats on we...More

It closes at 5:00pm. So get there before they close. We had coffee, a sandwich and lemon pound cake. All were very good and very reasonably priced. In the trendy Cloverdale area. Worth going out of our way to eat there .
