Friendly staff, good coffee. The upstairs patio is a great place to relax! Great view! Almost every time I have stopped the owner has been there leading her team which is awesome!

I love the breakfast panni with sausage from Lotus up! Their coffee is great as well. They are quick with service at the drive up window. Can't wait to go back.
