The coffee and baked goods were decent and priced about the same way all of the coffee in town is (expensive). What made this one unique was having the book store next door to browse.

Got a good cup of Cold Brew here. The chai was very good. The matcha was very good. Service was great and friendly. Nice little sitting spots as well. Definitely a great place to chill and drink some coffee.

Right on Elk Ave. the coffee is good, and the tea is great. A very comfortable place to have conversations and enjoy a "cup a" . The Staff is always helpful and it is not very pricey. A very good place to go.

Poor quality premade and then heated sandwich adorned with what tasted like cheese whiz. Chai tea latte was undrinkable. Nice feeling inside and connects to excellent bookstore.

What a wonderful place to have a small business meeting, tables, couches, Wi-Fi, coffee, tea, mocha, hot chocolate and great service, everything there that we needed. Right downtown Crested Butte and out of the cold.

We came by a couple of times to get iced drinks on a warmer day. We tried the chai, green tea with a flavor shot, regular iced tea, and a iced tea sparkler (green tea). All were excellent, and the staff was friendly and quick....More
