The coffee was average. The service was sub par. To me, if the customer is sitting down and is the only customer in the shop, taking the coffee over to the table would be a nice gesture instead of yelling that the coffee is ready especially when there are two staff members chatting to one another as though the customer...

We ended up here each day - for a cuppa, a muffin, to catch our breaths. It's just a little cafe with a few tables, counter service, a friendly barrista and windows wrapping around. Central location in shopping. It stood out among many choices for coffee shops.

My aunt - quite the muffin connoisseur - thought the Blueberry Muffins one of the tastiest she has had in America. Genuinely home-baked, light and full of blueberries, they went a treat with the coffee (we just had a regular coffee rather than the hundreds of other varieties on offer). A good pit-stop while exploring Taos.

I'm not a Starbucks junky, but I was impressed with the huge list of specialty coffee choices. When in Taos, think chili. So why not an Americano with red chili and cinnamon. Fantastic. Sold me. No cushy sofa's, no free internet, just a great cup of Joe in a town with too numerous to list coffee houses. In the Main... More

Located in the midst of bookstores, curio shops, unusual clothing and fabric stores, and of course art walks and antiquing. And, oh yeah, really good coffee in a quaint yet contemporary shop.

The drink menu is huge, but mostly coffee drinks. We don't drink coffee so our choices were much more limited. We opted for an ice cream based treat. We watched our basic vanilla (the available flavors board was no where to be found) ice cream get scooped out of a supermarket generic brand tub. The taste verified what we witnessed.... More

Coffee was amazing I had the Mexican Mocha just the right amount of spicy heat. Perfect for walking around Taos on a cool Autumn day.

This is a very popular spot for locals with limited parking, so it is best to walk to it. It has great coffee with flavors that are unique. Try the Chaco Cat mocha latte...dark chocolate with a hint of orange. It's not open late...only til 6 p.m.

Loved the walkup window to order while strolling the Bent Street Plaza. Latte was hot, made with good coffee and prepared just right. Pleasant server, good price.
