Quaint coffee shop with much more to offer. Home made soups and sandwiches. We like the Rueben on rye. The soups are made daily with a different kind each day. The coffees and teas are good. Service is excellent. Friendly and quick with the food....More

The coffee was delicious. The breakfast burritos were good portion and filling. The breakfast sandwich delicious. Crunchy bread was so good. Pastry selections looked wonderful but we were too full to try one.

Great for morning coffees, bagels, and sweets. Soup of the day and sandwiches are served quickly enough to make this a lunch-time favorite. Nice place to meet for conversation or to listen to music. Not as expensive as many coffee shops.

Visit this spot at least 3 days a week. Coffee, food, prices and service are the best around. Really enjoy sitting at the outdoor tables on a nice day.
