We literally “Just Love” this place! My kids always order the wakey wakey and personally I’ve ordered different menu items only to be impressed with everything. Can’t go wrong with breakfast, lunch, or even an early dinner here.
Just had theeee best iced caramel macchiato with almond milk. Absolutely delicious. Better than Starbucks and Dunkin hands down.
The coffee is so delicious and the employees are so nice and polite. I fell like I’m home. It is a place to go with friends or family. Even alone, somebody from there will always smile to you. It is also getting better and better. ❤️
Friendly and nice environment with polite staff. So many drink plus food choices, I usually order the breakfast taco and a caramel frappe. They even tweek the drinks by substituting ingredients if you don’t want it. I love going here, it’s quiet and has WiFi which is always great in my book… Keep up the good work!
