We are local people who have built a coffee bar that reflects our values. Milk from a family farm. Almond and soy options. Regular and gluten-free pastries from local bakers. Free wifi. Event space in the lower level.
And, of course, excellent coffee from a company that compensates their growers fairly.

Join us for a cup!



We host an open mic every month - typically the 4th Friday - from 7:30 to 10:30 pm.  Our next open mic is on Friday, July 25th.  We have a piano accompanist, Mark Burnell, who coordinates the evening and will play any music you bring (Mark also has an extensive song collection with music for you to choose from).  When you arrive at open mic, give Mark your name and he'll add you to the performance list.  If you don't want to sing, we'd still love to have you join us!
