    positive review  The food and drinks were excellent, especially the dirty chai. Best of all was the staff. Every interaction was pleasant, even fun at times. It really added to my first time being down at the Gorge. It's been an excellent spot to chill and will be coming back! 😊☕

    positive review  Doesn't look like much from the outside but WOW is their coffee good! Nice atmosphere too. We just wished we would have stayed in the Gorge longer so we could try the soft pretzel with beer cheese (and basically everything else on the menu).

    They made a perfect sugar free latte and my daughter and I had a nail biting game of checkers in this cozy artsy atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
