An excellent coffee shop right in the LL Bean store. Everything you want in a quality coffee shop. Plus, you don't even have to leave the LL Bean campus.

Loved the coffee. It was smooth and flavorful. Baristas were very friendly and it was a nice place to sit and do some journaling in the evening. I bought a pound of coffee to enjoy at home as well. I look forward to my next visit when I return to the area. Highly recommend!

The coffee is delicious and bakery offerings are varied and fresh. Nice place to sit and sip for a few minutes any time of the day but great place for a quick, quiet breakfast.

Stopped in here to get out of the heat and humidity. Decided upon a coffee mix called JMC (Jamaica me crazy). Good blend since it woke me right up and kept me shopping
