Great coffee, personable, friendly staff that didn't mind chatting with us tourists. They told us about the local area and helped us pick out drinks. They had lunch items available also and plenty a room to just hang out with wifi too.

Loved teh coffeehouse. If you like a string, robust coffee, you will definitely enjoy a quick stop here for a coffee. Also ordered the avacado, turkey sandwich and it was a great treat after taking our walking tour.

They have tons of flavor options, almost anything you could think of. The staff was friendly. I'd recommend it over a Starbucks type of place.

This exceedingly informal coffee-house in cobblestone downtown Salem has a few basic wooden tables. And a busy business too. There are all the usual expresso coffees, but also a good selection of green teas. There are mixed-fruit juices and yogurt smoothies. The smoothies are thick...More
