Interesting décor rustique, but rude & uppity staff - in particular a heavy-set girl with glasses & long brown hair. Always forgets the rose petals in the rose petal latte, and several times has even forgotten the honey! The male staff member with the scruffy beard is nice, though. I used to come here a lot more often…

I had the French toast, my partner the shashouka. Both were tasty and the coffee was also tasty!

I would not recommend this place. During my time there, I was spoken to in a nasty tone by the cashier. All because I asked if an item could be made vegan. She used the fact that she couldn’t understand me as an excuse to be rude and patronising. She laughed at me before abruptly saying “we don’t do substitutions”.

I had the same experience when the “barista” borderline shouted at me when my drink was ready. When I asked for a straw, she said they don’t do that, before quickly turning her back on me. The food was just as cold as the people working there. When I emailed the owner about my experience and asked for a refund, they apologised then immediately made excuses for their behaviour. Their exact words were:

“We are always trying to provide the best experience but sometimes mistakes and misunderstandings happen. I personally feel that during the Covid time we all lost some of our social skills”

They asked for my full credit card number via email (who does that?). Of course I never heard from them again when I said I wasn’t comfortable with that, despite offering a safer way to pay me back.

The owner’s lack of empathy and attention to detail clearly trickles down to the staff. They felt emboldened to take out the disdains for their job on me, because they know there won’t be consequences. When the owner can’t even keep their word, it’s no surprise that their team lacks integrity. Even my friend couldn’t help but point out the poor treatment. I should’ve walked out the moment it started. I’m embarrassed to have gone there with company, and will not be coming back.

This is quite a gem for SGV. A coffee shop that still roast its own beans on the premises in small patches. They have a good variety of choices from the common Columbian to Sumatra, Peruvian organic and Blue Mountain. The moment you walk in you know you are in the presence of good coffee.

I love this place! Jimmy, the owner, is very knowledgable of coffee. We tried the Hong Kong style egg waffle,curry fish meatball and mango sticky rice with condensed milk. The food was very delicious and made me feel like home. Highly recommend durian coffee and coconut coffee.

Great place to meetup and talk!
They follow strict COVID precautions, and provide a lax environment.

Food is good, and the drinks are fast to come out!

Enjoyed every minute if it ????

Delicious food and ambiance. Good for easy meals and good conversation. Service was a little odd as my friend ordered a drink and I guess her name was called out but we didn't hear it and didn't know it wouldn't be brought to the table, but other than that it was great!

Unfortunately this place has really went down in food and coffee quality. We went a few times recently and it was bad both times. I cannot recommend any longer, hopefully it gets better.

Cute coffee shop and cafe! Nice outdoor seating. You order at the front and they bring the food to you wherever you are sitting. Clean and good customer service. Will be back!
