What a wonderful cafe! You get such a feel of community here. The wifi is strong, the coffee AND tea are excellent, and the food (all of the offerings) are terrific. I returned several times, and the waffles are the best I have ever eaten. Great sandwiches and muffins. I cannot say enough about this wonderful cafe. You will be... More

Perfect cheesecakes. The best I've ever had. If you visit the place for cheesecakes, please try their plain, key lime or white chocolate raspberry cheesecakes. We've had them several time and the quality has never disappointed us. Their chai latte is very good too. It's not too sweet. We're going back for their croissants. Perfect local place with reasonable price... More

I go here frequently around 4:30 p.m. for a treat and coffee, either hot or iced. I usually bring my current book with me and stay until closing, 6:00 p.m. I never feel pressured to leave right away. A number of customers are on their computers at this time of the afternoon. This is my go-to cafe.

Clearly a neighborhood fave, judging from the line of customers waiting for the doors to open in the morning! The food was a bit expensive, but very good.

Had a nice brunch/lunch here today. Friendly service, plenty of tables (on 3 levels). Mini cheesecake was a nice way to end a meal. We had: BLT - chicken salad and the egg/pesto/tomato on ciabatta. Both very good. Parking is a little tight. Too hot for outdoor seating today but would be nice on a cooler day.

We have just arrived to the (small) city my daughter will live in. These small cafe is a piece of cake... very quite people, very well done food and a lovely place... to stay a while, to see the (calm) live walk in... Some of our best memories of our last trip to US.

I had the skim milk latte which came in a generous size mug and cute design. Staff very friendly. I'm an early riser so wish they opened earlier.

With three different levels of indoor seating as well as an outdoor patio area there should be a spot to please most needs. (There will be noise, but low enough level to work). The lowest/garden level area is typically where the laptop crowd gather and thankfully folks with children tend to opt for seating outside. Cafe boasts a conscious hipster... More
