We had heard about the scones and couldn't wait to try them. To be honest, they were fine, but not amazing! The person who waited on me seemed impatient and annoyed, as my 3 and 5 year olds made decisions on which scone to order....More

The cranberry scone was so fresh and wonderful! Real cranberries. Not craisins. The cinnamon roll was the best I've ever tasted! The frosting is so good. Not too sweet. Fresh cinnamon. The latte was very good too. Love the patio along the street to relax...More

My friends and I love this place. We usually meet at least 4 to 5 times a week. Everything is delicious. I love their smoothies.
