The best coffee I've had outside of Basel, Switzerland (which, in a couple of locations has the best coffee in the world). The caramel latte is excellent, prepared with care, and the confections are delightful. Friendly staff rounds out a nice visit.

Very good, quick breakfast with friendly staff and excellent breakfast sandwiches on croissants. Tried both bacon and sausage breakfast sandwiches which were generous in size and had plenty of flavor. Wish we would have gone there everyday during our visit.
