Stopped by for a sandwich and latte. The place is so cute and the food was perfect. The London fog latte is heaven! I highly recommend a stop by

When you walk in the door of this small quaint cafe the aroma of coffee and pastries hits you in the face and your mouth starts to water. I had a large cup of the dark roast coffee. It has a lot of flavor and aroma and no bitter aftertaste that is found in a certain name brand coffee. The... More

Wonderful spot for coffee. Tucked away just off the main drag, but plenty of parking. I had the seasonal Winter Wonderland and it was great. It's cozy-maybe ten seats but a couple of windows makes it feel larger.

I met a friend for adult coloring and coffee. It was my first visit. The location is great with lots of parking. It's very cute and cozy inside. Lots of drink and food choices, even a few vegan options. I had a pumpkin spice muffin, which was flavorful, but dry. The almond joy coffee was ok, a little bitter.

This is one of those places that locals enjoy swinging by and just chilling out with a nice cup of coffee or latte or cappuccino or... The cafe is probably one quarter in doors and the rest out doors. On nice days, it is an excellent place to sit and watch people. Depending on the time of day, you will... More

We stopped in for lunch after taking a stroll along Main Street to see how the restorations was coming along. Luckily, it looked like the LFM was minimally affected by the flood but Main Street while open to traffic now still has a long way to go before most of the shops reopen. We've had coffee and pastries here before... More

Maybe we went on a bad day but I was not impressed with the service nor the food. When we got there, the choice of baked goods was low and the croissant we had was not very good (and very expensive!). There are better place in Ellicott City!
