Kristi is an interplanetary-top-shelf-badass! After coming to the opera house to work, meaning write, on my new novel, she intuitively knows when I need my ritual Scotch to contemplate my days work. She is pleasant, witty & lovely as my server. TheWriterintheHat

I love to try places I haven’t been, however just a little strange. Order food way in the back, bar on side, coffees and yeas on other side, and bakery in different place. Very confusing when you just want a sandwich.

Cute coffee place. We came for breakfast but later in the day they serve sandwiches and other items. Very good food and wonderful scratch made biscuits. Coffee was yummy.

We had a wonderful lunch. Great hamburgers and sweet potato fries. Our dog was invited in to the coffee shop and received a free cup of whipping cream. The barista was wonderful . They have an amazing bakery as well.
