Their coffee is simply the best. The decor is creative and warm with felt flowers dangling from the ceiling amongst warm rope lighting. Feeling hungry? Please do try their Frittatas. Italian sausage and vegetarian choices are offered and both are filled with fresh, flavorful vegetables...More

I agree with others comments about this being a delightful surprise. I like the juices and gluten free cookies are scrumptious. Highly recommend. Nice proprietor to boot too.
