Great tasting coffee and well prepared. Coffee is made your way in an unique and original, historic building with historic ambiance. The four of us enjoyed a time to talk together before we left town to return back home.

Amazing coffee, amazing food, and a wonderful place to visit. The coffee here, their specialty, is incredible. Although it may take a bit to get your coffee, it's well worth the wait once you take a sip. This is due to the method they use,...More

Went for breakfast and it was very good! The atmosphere is different....it's like being in Harry Potter World. The meal was reasonably priced as well, and the people working were nice too.

Was looking for a local coffee joint while driving through and this place popped up on my GPS. At first when I got there, I wasn't sure if I was at the right place. (I took a picture of the place from the outside) It...More
