    Sweet potato lovers must order the Village sandwich! Love their chai latte - made with housemade chai tea concentrate. They also have excellent breakfast options (housemade granola) and pastries.

    I had the fig toast which I slightly regret as there were so many other amazing looking things on the menu. I loved the place though, really nice atmosphere and the staff are lovely and genuine.

    Great coffee from Pilot and Gimme! Coffee Roasters but the size of the space and crowded seating makes it unpleasant to hang out during rush hour.

    Lavender biscuit is a must! Have to definitely give it a try! The cappuccinos are amazing and so are the people who work there. I'm there every week, it's that good! 👍

    Great place to stop and grab coffee/breaky on the go. Pretty small for sit down. But great menu selection for coffee and breakfast sandwiches. Get here early on the weekends!

    get a cortado (aka gibraltar) not only for the equally rich flavors of milk and bean, but also for the delicate, adorable glass it comes in.

    Get their egg & feta sandwich. It comes on an amazingly tasty and yet oh so light brioche and it's both tasty and nutritious. Love it.

    Average latte, the ratio between milk and coffee was not good, you can barely taste the coffee. But the place was wonderful and very cozy. And they serves Tandem coffee which is great.
