Stopped in with my 7 year old daughter. I had a vanilla cappuccino and a Joy Nut bar. Both were delicious. My daughter had a hot cocoa and a muffin. Everything tasted good and we were very comfortable having a good conversation.

Nice coffee house housed in building adjacent to the terrific Farmer's Market, an Ann Arbor institution. Coffee is good but breakfast fare mostly pastries and other sweet and high calorie. Better off getting a freshly made breakfast burrito or egg plate from the kiosk next...More

Great coffee, friendly service, sleek decor. Comfortable campus-town hangout. A few pleasant sidewalk tables. Smaller than Plymouth Rd or Washington St cafes.
