Tried this coffee shop for the first time and really liked the vibe inside. Lots of tables, huge bags of coffee beans stacked by a giant coffee roasting machine, warm and inviting atmosphere. The service however was so slow, there was just one lady ahead of me and I didn't see anybody at the drive through. I couldn't quite figure... More

I have been going here for over 5 years, The decline of their coffee is apparent. I usually try to support small businesses, however after my last experience I wont step foot into this place again. Several times, I have ordered 1 size and they return with something I didn't order and a completely different size. Their food, is incredibly... More

Great coffee shop, with a great selections of 'panini', teas and lattes. The place is clean, tidy and well decorated. Confi chairs and tables, wi-fi, nice and attentive crew.

Located in a strip mall. Nice inviting coffee shop. Grabbed a large coffee and disappointed. Not smooth and has a edge. Starbucks would have been a better choice for me.

I love that this is a local coffee Brewer in Crystal Lake. There prices are good, and they also make a great cup of hot chocolate. They alway have local sweet treats too.

My husband and I stopped by here about 2 weeks ago after driving by it nearly every day for years. We entered into a very inviting atmosphere and a wonderful aroma or roasting coffee. We both ordered Lattes and sat and enjoyed a strong, wonderful coffee. I haven't bought bulk coffee from them yet since we are loyal to our... More

I'm a coffee drinker, one that's just short of being a coffee snob, and gotta say these folks do a great job of bringing it. The staff is always friendly, always helpful, always willing to explain a drink for you. Recently, I tried something different--the iced Chai. Wow. Now that was a terrific drink. Glad I got the 24 oz... More

If you are in the Crystal Lake area and enjoy a great coffee, or coffee type drink, this is the place. They have the roaster right in front of the place and at times you can catch them in the process of roasting the beans. You cannot beat the aroma.

Love the idea of it. Drive through is a little tough to get out of if you have to go west on Rt. 14! Coffee is excellent, baristas are very well versed in their different coffees and teas. Go as often as I can!
