We've wanted to come by here for months, and are so glad we made it. A cold slate gray day quickened our step to the door, but once inside, we warmed up and were welcomed in. Step up and place your order, and out it comes to your table. We had the superb, flavorful chili, so good, and the bright avocado lox toast, very satisfying, with a side of candied bacon! How can you go wrong?! Friendly, professional staff, who you could tell were smiling behind their masks(thank you!). We'll be back, for sure.


Husbands and I first time here ! And wow! Breakfast sandwich and coconut macaroon latte were phenomenal! Very unique and creative! Oh almost forgot the zucchini bread is extremely good! And it’s close to home!!! Definitely will become a regular! ❤️ Thank you for rocking our tastebuds!


Hands-down one of my favorite places to have breakfast brunch lunch and afternoon tea/coffee with a good company and a good book✨ excellent quality of food and kind service, a cafe with a purpose and encouraging impact in the community 👏🏼


This place is AMAZING. They support an amazing cause in many ways beyond this storefront, but the service and food/coffee is great. I've always had good coffee here, and the breakfast sandwiches are some of the best in town. I love coming here and have yet to have anything negative to say. The employees are very friendly and have always provided a good experience. I prefer going here over other coffee shops so my money helps further important work in our community.


Incredible mission and incredible food. You seriously cannot go wrong. Their Life Salad came with some of the best salad dressing I've ever had. They're doing some incredible work with those who have experienced human trafficking - your meal is money well spent!


Beauty in an unexpected place. This lovely little cafe is tucked away on a corner of downtown more associated with COTA stops and oil change shops than cafes. It's the flower that broke through the concrete; it brightens its small patch of the world... what we should all aim to do, right? Friendly service, chill ambiance, a higher purpose, and prices that match the uniqueness and high quality of the food. Also, the first time I've ever had dilly beans. Give it a try, you won't regret it!
