A friend and I only stopped in briefly for coffee to go, but my mocha latter was wonderful and the service was prompt and courteous. I would like to go back again next time I'm in Lancaster.

We went here twice in two days. Coffee is superb as was the cashew chicken salad. Every time we've visited, you have to wait for a table to open, but worth the wait. Pastries, pies and cookies are excellent as well.

With a great location across from the Fulton Theater and a block from The Trust, this is a great place for pre or post-theater eats. Always busy, which probably keeps the coffee fresh, it has an inner-city, Bohemian feel with patrons ranging from kids in...More
