Mildly rustic, 60's decor with open areas, plenty of tables, and a quiet peacefulness that exudes a warm comfortable welcome. Usual espresso-type coffee drinks were very good. Lunch menu includes an unusual "fruit plate" for less than $10, consisting of a few slices each of pineapple, orange, bread, melon, plus a perfectly room temperature triangle of brie, placed in an artful appetizing way on the plate. The people behind the counter recognized me on my second visit, smiling greetings. Located on the edge of a quiet strip mall, there was easy parking. Surprisingly for a "Mom and Pop" non-chain coffee shop, there is also a drive-through lane.
It's comfortable and has a good vibe and closes at 9 PM on most days. I love how you can mix and match teas on their tea list because they brew their own tea. They have a house iced tea as wellPrice: Very reasonable. My tea always costs $1.95 Parking: Easy to find, private lot shared with the stores around Service: Great! The baristas are always friendly although there is only 1 at a time. It sometimes might take longer because of that, but that has never been a problem. Food & Drinks: I've never had their food but it looks like they have a good selection. They even have gelato and have waitress table service from 10:30 to 2 on Monday through Saturday. Other than that, quiche & chicken salad are served all day. I love their teas. Of all the coffee shops I've been to, this place is one of the best. Notes: Great vibe. A lot of groups meet here, but they usually take the bigger tables in the middle of the place. I tend to stay on the perimeters where there are outlets so that's never a problem for me! Gluten-free-ers: They have a good selection of gluten free snacks. Overall: This place is my go-to coffee shop if I need to get things done but not stay too late. This place is also good for hanging out with buds and catching up on life. I'm a fan!
