One of my favorite places, even with the changes they have made to their menu. If you are into organic and vegan, and you are environmentally conscience, this is your go to place. Coffee is still excellent, but remember to bring your own mug!

We stopped here while on a weeklong road trip (on our way home to Chicago through Wisconsin) and we were so happy we did. It was so unexpected and nice to find healthy, vegan (!!) food so close to the expressway. We got the hummus wraps and potato soup, as well as a blended mocha drink. Everything was great. We...

Great stop for coffee, very friendly, prices were low. Love that they fill your own mug to go! A bit hard to find the driveway but worth the circle around. Remodeling now hope they keep the vibe.

Cute little place - I wish they were open. We stopped in yesterday, January 3. There were no signs indicating that they were closed. The sign near the door listed their hours and they should have been open for business at around 1:00 in the afternoon. Maybe next time.

Anyone thinking about going here, think again. There are much better choices out there. This place has a "strange and weird" atmosphere. And the food is very substandard, if the food you order is even available. They seem to be out of food on a regular basis. Very "strange smell" in this place, not exactly appetizing. Also, I recently learned... More

This is the most unique coffee shop we have ever been to. The decor was awesome and one of a kind. The barista was very knowledgeable and friendly. They are also eco friendly which fits their theme well. If you use as standard glass coffee mug in store you save 50 cents. Pretty cool incentive to reduce waste! They had... More

Great coffee shop, excellent menu. Really puts other coffee shops to shame. The prices are fair and the quality is there! Also, there is a small collection of used books there for sale, $1 flat. Picked up a cool read while waiting for my coffee

This is a must-see, photo opportunity kind of place! The drive up window is not like anything you've ever seen. Oh, and the coffee is great too!
