Stopped here to get a quick breakfast. I had an iced-coffee which reminded me so much of Hawaii. The coffee wasn't too bitter and I also appreciated that the cup wasn't filled with a lot of ice. Friendly staff, small but cool environment.

We stumbled upon this place one morning and returned every morning for coffee and breakfast. Fantastic staff, amazing service, delicious food, and outstanding coffee. So many options for food and coffee that everyone can be satisfied. Even have dog treats for furry friends. Highly recommended.
