We lived very close to this coffee place, but now live farther, but still go there, when we are at that end of H Street. The owner knows us, and always greets us with a smile. The coffee is excellent!

I'm not easy to please with coffee, but they did it right. Great atmosphere as well. If I were local, it would definitely be a place I would frequent.

Every time I come in here I realize what is missing in other cafes. The patio out back is my secret oasis. The coffee and friendly owner & staff are always perfect.

The warm experience of meeting the owner was only surpassed by the taste of the coffee. We loved the garden as well as the music.

The service here is not rushed, but the coffee is fantastic. The people who work there take pride in the quality of the beverages and are very kind. Try to grab a table in the courtyard if it's sunny. I've always felt welcomed to stay...More
