Beatnik feel kind of coffeehouse. Got some work done on laptop over a great espresso. They have lots of different coffee - we liked the Ethiopian coffee. Food is lite fare but it was fresh. They also serve some local goods like honey which we...More

Stopped in for a Latte. After about 7 minutes I realized the girl forgot to make my coffee- she was very apologetic and offered to make me a free one next time. Nutella latte was delicious- flavorful but not overly sweet. I rated them excellent...More

What a nice find downtown on the main drag! It is a cool and friendly little coffee spot. They have local art displayed with a gallery on the second floor, a well. Parking is convenient behind with a rear door entrance if the streets are...More

I was visiting from Rochester and went there based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. The young man there was courteous and proficient. He recommended spicy mocha latte which was excellent. I'll definitely go back next time. The store is moving soon "down the street."

My husband and I enjoyed our spiced pumpkin and almond joy lattes. The barista was very kind and offered suggestions for activities in the area. Unfortunately, seating is extremely limited to 2 small tables.

I like to support local whenever I can. This place has good and strong brews. A bit hard to find, as it sets off the street just a bit. I recommend for those who like a slow pour or are coffee snobs.

Most places don't cold brew their iced coffee. I found this place by dumb luck and was so delighted. This was the only thing I ordered, but they had a full coffee menu and some baked goods. If you're into coffee, I would check this...More

Lovely coffee in Canandaigua. I don't bother with Starbucks, so we had been missing espresso for a few days. Good coffee is very difficult to find in this area! Dalai Java is a cute little spot! I had an iced latte with almond or something......More
