That means us. Sitting down to stay at the cafe is no longer allowed, and while we long to offer our coffee in a proper mug, all drinks have to be made to go.

We have plenty of beans for sale (whole or freshly ground) so you can take the taste of the cafe home with you. We also are selling a small selection of board games that can be played at home, so you won’t be too “board” without us 🙂. Or purchase an e-gift card. Enter coupon code SPRINGBREAK20 for 10% off.

We’ll post here as things change and thank you for your continued support!

Summer Hours

We’re switching to summer hours beginning this week! We’ll be open normal times in the morning so you can still enjoy the best coffee in town to start your day! We’ll be closing earlier in the evenings most nights depending on business. Don’t worry about cutting your games short though. We’ll stay open later on any nights we have gamers! Have a great summer!
