Great place to get a great specialized coffee as I prefer over Starbucks. We also enjoy a nice quiet atmosphere along with a Danish too.

If you like to have a gourmet coffee at a reasonable price, this is a great place to go. They also have some nice treats to go with it ranging from pastries to sandwiches.

All Second Cup drinks are all made perfectly. I always order the White or Vanilla flavoured hot chocolate and they're always made perfect

My friend and I had the salted caramel on the hot chocolate. We shared a brownie. It was over nine dollars! And I suspect that it was about 600 calories, at least. Nice seating and friendly ladies serving. I am not one to buy a lot of hot chocolates or cookies at cafes, so I can't tell if the price... More
