As his sign on the door read “grumpy barista “ was every thing he claimed to be. Quite a dry humor, his scones were wonderful! The banana /bkuebread was great! We even bought extras for tomorrow’s morning coffee! Bathrooms would be a plus!

We stopped in on a rainy afternoon for tea and "Mexican hot chocolate." The self-proclaimed "Grumpy Barista" was perfectly pleasant to us. He answered a few questions about the town, asked if I'd like marshmallows in the hot chocolate. The place is attached to a...More
