A member of the Green Dining Alliance, this coffeehouse will serve you with a spotlessly clean mug of great coffee. Lighting is LED, and the large windows give a picture of traffic outside while you relax. Baked goods are tasty too.

This coffee shop has a pleasant atmosphere and has expanded it’s seating from it’s original setting. While the menu remains much the same the quality of food has decreased. Sandwiches which once oozed with cheese now have only a minimal amount and the ratio of...More
