Coffee is very good, both the brewed for drinking, and the beans for buying and taking home. Always have an interesting assortment of beans available, and will grind for you if you want. Fair pricing. Limited food options, but if you want a quiet welcoming place for a good coffee, maybe a muffin or biscotti, and a few minutes with... More

Emmit knows his freshly roasted coffee beans. From all over the world. I have him grind me my half and half for my French press, nothing better. I can have it strong or mild. Always perfect, and I can't resist his breakfast sandwich especially w sausage. I love the community feel. Neighbors hanging out together.💘

Extremely friendly service and great coffee. This place was worth finding. It was wrongly listed on Google maps but we could see it was open. We really wanted to find a good, local coffee shop.

This is a great little coffee shop and reading room. You can drop in for take-out or sit awhile and enjoy the books. The coffee is some of the best you can find around anywhere.

I have been to this cafe many times. The hot chocolate is great. Also, try Laura's Dreamy Cider, its the best thing I've drank in my life. The soups are great as well as the paninis. Some nights there is a band playing, they are very good. I highly recommend this cafe.
