This place isn't very clean, the walls have cracks. None of the food is cooked fresh, most of it is done in a microwave. Also the owner isn't very pleasant with the staff.

very quaint coffee shop. great sandwiches but you might have to wait awhile if its even slightly busy. the staff turnover is a problem and finding a good barista seems to be difficult. seating is limited, but the size just adds to its appeal.

The food was ok, the service slow and the location delightful. Like stepping into the college bistro's in Tucson but not as well organized. It may get there, but it's just ok now.

A refreshing change from all the Mexican restaurants in town. This quiet bistro setting with outdoor covered dining area has great food, featuring an expanded menu of paninis, fresh salads, and smoothies. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful, and the manager was very...More

Amazing sandwiches, smoothies, and tea. Cute little hide-a-way. I love sitting on the patio which is great most of the year. Love to go with a friend and enjoy and cup of tea.

We are located in a historic Downtown building. It used to be a hardware store. Our store is made to look like an early 1900s bar. We have a long counter on one side of the room and tables on the other. We are continuously renovating and improving the existing building. Our bakery is currently under construction, but should be done in about 6 months. We will bake our own breads, pastries, and the like. We also plan to open up the building next to us and make it into a fine dining establishment. That is a few years off, but we are very excited about it.
