Coffee was great. Service was great. The pastry was great. The staff was knowledgeable about the coffee and baking they served which, you don't always find. Cozy spot.

Stopped in for coffee during a visit to hot springs. Dark roast coffee was amazing, we found out its locally roasted. Cinnamon Buns were great, warm with cream cheese frosting, and breakfast wraps were tasty. Only critique would be to have more options for breakfast.

Thanks to Kris, the NEW owner, our visit was exceptional, so welcoming and positive. This place is easy to find, just follow his sandwich boards once you reach Fairmont Hot Springs. We will definitely be visiting for Chai Latte each time we pass through!
