The coffee was great. No fresh baked goods or anything...but great place to have a good cup of coffee. Feels like a coffee shop from way back...jazz music playing on the record player...piano off to the side...local art on the brick walls.

Stopped in for a iced macchiato for my wife and enjoyed the vibe and uniqueness of this coffee shop. It's located in an old brick building so there's exposed brick walls on the interior with a plethora of local art hanging on it. The ceilings...More

Enjoyed a sandwich. My friend enjoyed soup and salad which she liked very much. Nice warm people with ample seating. Will return

Wow! Did we like this place! The coffee is great and so is the relaxing vibe. Grab a cup of coffee and pull up a chair... we didn't want to leave. Make it a point to visit and enjoy!

Just had coffee while listening to Martin Grosswendt and Susanne Salem-Schatz play old time jazzy-bluesy music. It's a perfect venue for this type of music and the proprietors were quite nice.

Ordered an iced latte and not cool, ice melted and warm. Stale tasting coffee and no signage of prices in shop on wall. Not very organized. Not impressed. Chalked up to the worse coffee I have purchased.

Very friendly service and the gentleman at the counter was very welcoming. Coffee has great flavor and the vanilla iced coffee was the best I've had in a very long time. Make sure you have cash handy because the shop doesn't accept cards.

Very cool place in New Bern to grab a coffee. A variety of coffees are available. Atmosphere is a little Haight-Asbury ish.

We were surprised how many New Bern places close early on a Sunday like this place. After visiting attractions all day, we were looking for a place for coffee or a cold drink. Hard to find in downtown New Bern after 5pm on a Sunday.
