We just needed coffee and walked into a magic little treasure. Wonderful atmosphere in an old church, great service, music, art, and amazing coffee! We had a gluten free chocolate pastry that was delicious! Felt like we were in Quebec!

Not only is the coffee good here, but treat yourself to the best granola I have ever had. Homemade and baled. The breakfast sandwich is also top-notch.
