They have great coffee. It's organic and fair trade. They had DR Congo and Sumatra on drip when we went. Both were great. We got 2 donuts and one of the cinnamon bun/donut things. All of them were amazing!!

From other reviews we were expecting more. Had a lemon filled donut and maple glazed. They were ok but not great.
Were there early in the day and there were only a few donut selections to choose from. Didn’t see anything like in some of the pictures.
Rather disappointing.

If you are looking for lighter than air, fresh, yummy donuts, look no further! A little slice of heaven!

The Doughnuts and Latte were Good. But after reading reviews we expected amazing. They may be the best in area as several comments suggest. However they are just good if you travel a lot and like visiting doughnut shops as a quest.
