Location and contact


Steamed milk for a cafe au lait.
House Coffee
Always​ hot and fresh. Try one in a signature travel cup and your first one is free. Now available in dark or light roast.
Cafe Au Lait
Steam forced through compressed, finely ground coffee brings you espresso. See the rich caramel layer on top? That’s crema. Without crema, it’s not espresso. Too bold for you? Try it in a cup of hot steaming water for an americano, or marked with foam for a macchiato.
Shot in the Dark
No mystery here. One (or two! ) Shots of espresso dropped in a cup of hot donkey house blend–light or dark
Espresso rich with crema is topped with thick foam made individually for each cappuccino. More coffee flavor than the latte. We serve ours in glass so you can see the layers. Nice.
Italian Cappuccino
Go continental. Drink cappuccino as our european friends prefer it; small, strong, and powerful.
Seattle​ brewed fame into this drink, a lighter version of the cappuccino. Much more steamed milk, less foam. Make it with half &half to get the seductive breve
Flavored Latté
Enjoy of world of flavors complimentary to coffee in these drinks. Ask a donkey barista for suggestions. The obvious choice for cocoa lovers is a mocha. Have it iced on a hot day—iced flavored latte

It was cool and reminiscent of the '60s in Athens. Good amount of space and meh coffee. There was not much choice of small plates of food but, I was there over a year ago.

Ducked in here for a coffee and I’m glad we did! “Experienced” hipster baristas, excellent cappuccino, and a new nitro cold brew my daughter raved about. Back room is really relaxing, good vibe. Nice soundtrack on this morning. Board games, a variety of seating configurations...More
