Went in today. Person at the counter glared at me like I just woke her up from a nap (maybe I did). Ordered a muffin and she gave me the wrong kind.

Interesting coffee and snack stop in Maple Plain. Clean and well maintained. Varied menu and food prepared right in front of you. A nice casual coffee break can happen here.

Its alright, not really any other options in the area. Service is usually bad to fair. However breakfast sandwiches are above average and they have an overpriced coconut cookie that is half dipped in chocolate that I can't get enough of.
