Great atmosphere, great coffee and snacks, typically much more peaceful than the cramped, overcrowded Starbucks down the street.

You order at the counter and then pick up your breakfast. We had avocado toast with eggs and it was just fine. Nice place to sit outside & watch the exhausted bicyclists come in from riding Hwy 9.

They are good for casual dinning. Price is low. You don't need to dress up for this place. After hiking, it is a good place to hang
