Great coffee and food. Sometimes a little unorganized, especially at the start and end of the season. Having said that when the place is fully up and running it is a great place to meet with friends or just hang and read the paper.

Hip little place - good coffee and good food. Great snow stop when on the mountain. We had chicken rolls and they were lovely. Nice and warm too inside

Terrible service! Couldn't put some chicken in the pesto fettuccine because apparently 'they don't go together', asked for the bolognaise on spaghetti instead of gnocchi and that's too hard as well. Entree came out with the main which we waited for forever. So bad 👎🏻
