Stoped for a espresso. The place is great, nicely decorated atmosphere and music. The espresso was a little over extracted, but it was good. Worthy a stop for a coffee - they offer a full variety of preparation methods and coffee flavors.

This is a fairly good-size coffee house in Portland, Maine. We went in to get some coffee and some beans. It is a local place, and very friendly. They have a large menu and their coffee is good. Nice place to sit, sip, and people...More
