This place is super cute! We used trip advisor to find the best coffee in Alamogordo and this place didn't disappoint. We grabbed a dark roast and sandwich to split and really enjoyed both! Will stop in next visit to Alamogordo!

This is a great spot perched on a hillside with a great patio and view of White Sands NM. Two coffees and two pastries for 5 bucks.

Excellent coffee. Would give them 4.5/5 if I could. Reasonably priced, nice environment where I would spend my time studying if I lived locally.

Very nice coffee-bistro. Terrific views in the only truly upscale area of Alamogordo. Coffee & coffee drinks are top-shelf. Terrific light menu. Seen some reviews that complain about food prices.

What a wonderful little place! The young woman working was delightful and my coffee was perfect! They offered alternative milks and a variety of beverages. A little out of the way, but worth it-- offered a beautiful view of Alamogordo!

Terrible service. The female making drinks, made the previous customers drinks incorrectly, then could not make my order properly. I asked for a dry cappuccino, and received a full latte. After asking the male coworker to remake my drink, there was some form of sweetener of which I never requested. Food was mediocre.
