    I enjoyed a delish banana nut muffin and Almond Joy iced coffee. Cool place for a professional or casual meeting. Menu is never ending and service is great!

    I will continue to support lgbt businesses but all the signs are off putting and has ruined the cozy atmosphere. I get it restrooms, wifi, for customers only cc purchases over 5 & no outside food

    love the ambiance, drinks, and food! but the furniture is a bit worn down and shabby (not chic!). time to invest in some new furniture to revitalize the shop.

    Gay-owned and themed coffee house in the South Wedge. Along with being the meeting place for lots o' groups and gatherings of LGBTQ+ people, it's a great place for a 1st date or looking for a date.
