Awesome service, great coffee, loyalty card and app and you can txt your order so it is ready when you arrive

Having used up more than 2 loyalty cards, I guess I'm a fan. The service is great, they respect and treat everyone like special guests. They take pride in their food, its presentation and service. It takes me back to my regular visits to Japan and the friendliness and service you expect at the higher end of the market. It is frequently busy, but you never seem to have to wait long. The do also offer takeaways, but I like going thee so much that if I am going to drive there, I will stay and eat there. Recomended:)

I haven't done business with these people yet, but I have been watching them and am getting to know and respect the skills and passion of the owner. I recommend having a chat with them about how they can make your life easier.

I can't speak highly enough of these guys. I arrived from New Zealand with an iPhone, not knowing if it was locked or not. The guys tried their own SIM's in my phone to confirm that it wasn't and then signed me up to a prepay H20 SIM and helped me set it up for my USA Road Trip. The whole store worked as a team to make sure I got what I needed and I am very grateful to them. I wish I could remember their names, but suffice it to say the whole store helped and made a big difference to my trip.
