A great place to start your day, or rejuvenate in the afternoon, overlooking Kenosha Harbor. Variety of beverage, pastry, and sandwich selections. local artist-inspired atmosphere. Nothing pretentious like the national chains.

If your looking for a nice place to meet and discuss business, not private issues, but general information this is a beautiful location. If you can sit outside on the deck it is very peaceful. The coffee is good, as is the food.
