This is a quaint coffee shop with outdoor seating in a garden setting. We were there on a Friday night and then had a guy playing an electric piano. Nice. My iced coffee was good. Service adequate. Prices were similar to Starbucks. An enjoyable place to relax and have a cup of coffee.

My daughters and I visited this quaint coffee business on a chilly night. They have a large selection of beverages and some tasty looking cakes and desserts. The building is small with many old time items hanging on the walls. The coffee that the barista made for my daughter was done very artistically and she said it was delightful. The... More

Came by around 11 and was told by the guy working that we had to wait 10 minutes while he did the ice cream. It took almost 20 minutes to finally get a coffee. Usually like coming here. Need to go elsewhere as they don't have enough help. Or maybe schedule your staff before opening times so they can do... More

Absolute decadence in caffeine. Delicious. Kind barista. Quaint setting. Perfection. I had the breve with Irish creme today. Last night had their key lime pie. Best in my life.

Having worked at various coffee shops in our youth and also being coffee snobs we were blown away by how awesome both their coffee and chai were. All the little knickknacks provided us with endless amusements every morning we visited. If you like coffee or tea your owe it to yourself to stop by. If you do, make sure to... More

Nice stop for a snack, coffee, ice cream, or ice cream and coffee!! Refreshing interlude from the sun crowded main streets! Would return.

Stumbled upon this little gem on our way out of town and had to stop in. Small open air cafe on the corner with eclectic items inside including a snarky magnet collection we thoroughly enjoyed while we waited for our drinks. We both got an Almond Joy Frozen Mocha and they were prefect!! Not too sweet and a great cool... More

Crucial Coffee is a cozy, colonial style structure with delicious offerings. The Spiced Thai coffee is heavenly! Try a butterscotch cookie too. Highly recommended!
