We used to love this place when it was across the street. Small and warm . Food and coffee will come up almost at the same time. Just stopped by today and it took over 30 min to get the food. You can see the cook moving like a turtle . Not only we waited a long time but our... More

Long wait for mediocre food and overpriced coffee. Did not see gloves on the cook, servers did not seem clean either. Staff had no knowledge of wines.

Rush espresso makes a great espresso, which you would expect. They also have a nice wine list, which you would also expect. What is an unexpected surprise is how cool and low key the atmosphere is (plus a full liquor bar including some nice bourbons!). Live music certain weeknights with largely community shared-table seating, it's a great place to hang... More

Good, local coffee house with a nice vibe. Definitely not Starbuck's and that is a very good thing. The food looked to be very well prepared but all I needed was my quad cap, chocolate croissant.

Service and artwork with the coffee are amazing great overall atmosphere also cozy but comfortable! Great for meeting with clients or a personal coffee for yourself can't go wrong either way.

This place recently expanded and added a wine bar and a small corner for entertainment. The decor is contemporary. Nice place for a business meeting or casual date.

Good breakfast and pretty. Good coffee. Good Prices. Nice atmosphere. It's a nice place just to sit and visit with friends. There is a lot of room to sit and spread out.

I ordered the delicious breakfast that came with a side of bacon jam, boy was that yummy! However, the plate was 'garnished' by splattering paprika or some such thing all over it. As a tidy eater, I was put off by this messy presentation and had to wipe the edge of my plate off. Service was relatively slow in a... More

Great service and a great product. My wife had an excellent latte, I had an iced americano. Cheaper and better than Starbucks. Very friendly staff, we'll definitely be back!

This is a hidden gem, for now. I have enjoyed coming here for a few months. The location gives them plenty of space to quaint host meetings and meet clients with out all the coffee "niche" players. Stop by and say hi!

Thank Shawzer
