Windows on Milwaukee street let in lots of morning sun. And, If not sunny, still cheery. Great baked oatmeal with apples.

Nice quiet guitar music, great mature customer service! I tried the Pumpkin Chai and promptly ordered another! Can't wait to return. Great 3rd ward location!

I found the staff to be super friendly and the service quick. The food was very good, and quite fresh. The only downside was that I could have easily gotten more food for less money elsewhere.

Pros: good location. Decent atmosphere. Cons: way over priced. Tiny portions. Pushy service. I really only come here when I have to. Look elsewhere.

I stopped in hear while exploring the Historic Third Ward and was very pleasantly surprised. I had a delicious cafe latte and my husband enjoyed an Italian strawberry soda.

Everything was great from the service to the coffee to the food. What a great find on our way out of Milwaukee. We had great service and our food was great. We will be back again when we are in Milwaukee. It is so hard to find a good place that has it all. THANK YOU!

I was not too impressed by this coffee shop. I felt it was a bit pricey for the items I purchased (grilled cheese and iced mocha), though I do not know how it compares to other coffee shops in the area. The atmosphere was quiet and nice. Very clean and in good repair. I sat and used the internet while... More

Much of the food is pre-prepared and overprices. The service isn't very good. A good coffee house, but not much of a restaurant.
