I saw this cafe when we drove in but I was not interested in trying it out. It looks very shady. Read the reviews and decided to give it a shot. I was not disappointed. The coffee was great and the muffin was perfect. Very...More

We simply can't understand the coffee reviews for this place. We had two drinks and both ended up in the trash as horrible. Homemade cookies was good. Perhaps we just hit a bad day.

I always pop in here for a large drop coffee because I'm not a large chain coffee person. The owner is always there and very friendly. Her coffee is outstanding. I love the ease getting in and out, versus the chain shops. It's a very...More

We stopped in for a quick lunch. I had the best cafe au lait ever and a really fresh made chicken salad sandwich. My husband had a ham sandwich that he really enjoyed. It was busy but we didn't feel rushed or crowded. Has outdoor...More
