Great little local coffee shop in this college town. The atmosphere in here was great. A bit more spacious than your typical Starbucks. Good selection of pastries and specialty coffees. We even picked up a souvenir Dawg can of coffee.

Outstanding variety of coffee drinks and snacks. Had the Frosted Joe with an espresso shot and a brownie. Was set for the day! Quick and courteous service, great price...but better than Starbucks in pricing. Quiet atmosphere relaxes you as you read, study, or chat. Great...More

We stopped in for a drink on a cooler, rainy day while visiting Athens. I ordered a hot chocolate, and asked for whipped cream and caramel on the top. I got it! It was delicious. It was delicious to the last drop.
