Great small town coffee shop. I spent a few hours here drinking coffee, eating a pastry or two, and catching up on work. It was busy the whole time with locals who obviously love it. Great coffee, tasty bagel, reasonable prices. I would highly recommend it if you are in town and want a snack and a nice place to... More

Generous portions of eggs...crisp edges to the eggs and just the right amount of cheese and veggies. Yum! Prices are a bit high for this area given the meal (eggs). Paid what I would expect to pay in the metro area.

We stopped in to this cozy, comfortable cafe for morning coffee drinks. Then we tried a pastry or two. Then we settled in to read and work and be a part of the community feel here. We liked it so much, we stayed and ordered hot apple cider drinks and lunch. Sad to leave. Great place.

My husband is gluten free and I am a vegetarian so I wanted to check this place out. Best biscuits and mushroom gravy ever and my hubby was blown away by the gf muffins-we will def be back!

Stopped here on the way out of town from visiting the college. Great local baked goods (they get them from across the street). Very friendly staff.

I just ordered a latte here, but it has free wifi, cute tables and chairs to sit at, very friendly looking. My latte was perfect and a different flavor for me, malted vanilla bean. Very good stop.

We were there just before opening at 8:00am and watched as "our" freshly baked goods were delivered - walked over from the Ashland Baking Company across the street! Yum. Delicious mocha - I had the regular, my husband had the Mayan mocha with chili pepper and cinnamon. We each had different breakfast sandwiches - delicious and fresh.

Thank esperanzasl
