Stopped in to check out the pastries. A nice apple pie caught my eye. I dreamt about it all night and had to return the next day to have a slice. I was not disappointed. The people there are also really nice.

This was my 2nd visit to the place. I order the hammerhead espresso. It was good and great coffee beans! The cappuccino that I had during my 1st visit was not good. Diluted coffee in my cappuccino.

I love the atmosphere of this place. It feels like a little cafe in a small town. Had lunch here last week. Turkey & avocado on sour dough. Outstanding! I also love their flavored coffee. I liked the free internet too.
