Local place with delicious coffee and treats. They even have amazing gluten free desserts! So good. Try to stop by every time I'm in Portsmouth. Hang out on the bench outside while sipping your coffee.

I've loved this place for many years, going back to its old location on Daniel Street. Friendly staff, relaxed environment, wonderful coffee. There's always interesting music playing, and tasty snacks and Turkish food products are available for purchase.

Walked in and was instantly impressed with atmosphere. That's when I knew I could ask the barista for advise for the perfect coffee. After a large draw on my drink and chat with the owner, I knew I have to review this shop. ShopLocal ShopOften!!
