Nice place to take a break while exploring the Commons. The location was clean. People were relaxing at the tables. On the walls they had unique paintings for sale. Prices were about what other coffee shops charge.

Enjoyable coffee and breakfast spot located in what was the Traverse City State Hospital. Very nice staff and good healthy breakfast. The oatmeal with all the topping is great.

We enjoyed breakfast several times during our stay. We were amazed at the quality of food given the super small cooking area! Super fresh bagels & delicious oatmeal filled with fresh fruit were our favorites. Would recommend!

Had a very nice Carmel latte and a panini sandwich suggested by the staff and it was delicious The only suggestion I have is for a better ventilation system while they are cooking because you will walk out smelling like a panini. I will return.

Love the great coffee, so fresh. Also, yummy baked goods, especially the rosemary shortbread cookies sprinkled with chunky sugar-so addictive!

Great little place for a breakfast bowl and good coffee. My kid had apple juice and a bowl as well had to pay for a refill on juice but whatever. It's Traverse City, it's to be expected.
