How I heard of this place: The Entertainment Book had a coupon!
Type of cuisine: Coffee shop with a variety of granitas on the menu. Breakfast, pastries and snack sandwiches are also available for purchase.
Ambiance: Very homey. Busy decor with a lot of items (cards, photographs, jewelry from local artists) for sale and obvious immediately upon entry. Seating area and library just beyond the baristas area is more open, with comfortable (couch) seating and books to enjoy while sipping coffee or for purchase. Outdoor seating area also available in the back for those warm summer days, or with heating lamps for cooler days. A small pond trail and terrace surround the seating area, with umbrella-ed tables and chairs give the feeling of being in a natural retreat. Comfortable space that makes you feel like you are at home in your own backyard (if you have one).
What I ordered: I ordered a tall non-fat iced vanilla latte – and learned that all shots are pulled ristretto – ($2.40). My friend ordered a 16-ounce non-fat coconut latte ($2.90) and added raspberry flavored powder over the foam. (Flavors are an additional $0.50)
What I loved: The coffee used has a lightly roasted flavor. The raspberry powder was a nice addition to the typical cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate offered in most coffee shops.
Why I loved it: I loved the prices for the quality of coffee. I loved the friendly lady behind the bar who greeted us warmly and chit-chatted as she prepared our drinks.
Cost: Low for a coffee shop ($2-$4 for 8-ounce to 20-ounce coffee beverages).
***A coupon for a $2 16-ounce coffee is available on their website!***
