Very friendly cashier and barista. Cappuccinos were tasty, best we've had in a while. Pastries were fresh and good enough to make you wish you had bought an extra one or two. Pleasant outdoor seating. They were busy but got the drinks out quickly.

We had an iced mocha latte as well as the zucchini carrot muffin and the brownie. Pastries were about average but the coffee was good. Overall a fun spot with fine coffee

The coffee drinks are made from locally roasted coffee. Around 8 a m the service may not be very fast; as the Barista has to deal with a little "talk story" from locals and visitors too. Local Folks sitting under the canopy behind the bus...More
