What our Guests Say...

"Sure there are plenty of places to grab some coffee in downtown Fredericksburg, but what all those other places lack is an April and Christian. Welcoming everyone from all walks of life who step in with a smile and potential great conversation, they also keep it interesting with tons of weekly great community gathering events. Christian and April are the kinds of small business owners who give Fredericksburg it's great small town charm. Stop in for some great coffee and pastries and see for yourself."
"I was completely thrilled when I stopped in for my first visit. It is such a gem. One of the owners made me the best latte. And the fact that they carried Kickshaw treats that I could eat was perfect. Also upstairs they have a kids section, which my little guy loved. And her daughter totally welcomed my little guy with open arms."
"This is one place that anyone will feel right at home. As a frequent customer I can say this is a local business I will proudly support. From the day to day family shop with kids playing nicely in their room and patrons enjoying conversation in a unique space, to the night time events to get the area community involved packing the space to the brim with real genuine connections. It only gets more and more unique the more you get to know the place. HIGHLY recommend."
