Stop here to catch up the latest in town. The locals like this spot and easy to chat with any of them. The coffee is good, good for lunch or a light snack as well. Stop in and enjoy.

Any beverages you desire, Ho Joe has it for you. If, you just wanted to go or if, you wish to sit and enjoy it in their cafe. Nice and cozy room for many people, many tables and a few seats with view into the street. A great start of your day or a nice place to have a treat... More

We needed a quick bite to eat so popped in here. The specialty coffee was really good and served quickly. The sandwich was not so good. It sounded great on paper, grilled cheese with tomatoes and bacon. It was thin, similar to paper, white bread and I couldn't really see anything else on there but cheese and the smallest tomato....

We visited last week. Taking refuge from the cold to grab a cup of java. The coffee tasted like it had been made many hours prior. In fact, as soon as my hands were warm, I tossed the full cup. Fresh is always better.

Now that Nourish is closed we thought we'd give this place a try. It's very good! Sandwiches, wraps and a couple of salads to choose from. We'll be back!

The baristas will deliver the espresso fix you're craving, to go or to stay. Friendly staff, comfortable seating to visit with friends or read while you sip. A cookie called my name from the baked goods section: not a huge selection of items, but it all looked fresh and appealing.

Thank SusChef
