I REALLY want to love this place. The very first time I came here, I was served by one of the owners and had great service and great coffee.... but.... the next 2 times, not so lucky. It was the female server on the last 2 visits... and that may keep me away. I ordered a vanilla latte, and she... More

Don't miss this place if you love great coffee. Could not get enough and once we found it we were then nearly every day.

the staff is very freindly and the atmosphere is very relaxing yet has a nice buzz about it. The locals, old and young flock here for a break, lunch, talk, reading paper or their book...a must if you want to decompress

While my new husband and I were on vacation to the mountains we stumbled upon this shop. We both later wish we had spent roughly 14 dollars elsewhere! Shop is very well decorated but very dark. We placed our order with the barista and the wait began! It had to have been 20 mins before we got the first of... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. If you like local coffee shops this is for you. They have all the usual drinks you like and pastries. They also have some local craft and art on display.

Great service, very nice, down to earth people. Store is located in the Food Lion shopping area across from Sugar Mountain. Although they're pretty much the only coffee shop in the area, they would do well in any foot traffic city. Couches and chairs inside, High-tops outside. Great place!

The staff was friendly. My smoothy was good. But my friends drinks were very strong on the coffee. There were only three of us and it took a long time for the staff to prepare each order. I would say 15 minutes per drink. That's too long.
