Went in search of this place with a lot of good reviews and found that it changed about 4 months ago to Buffawhale Coffee Shop. Good sandwiches and crazy inexpensive. My wife loves the Pumpkin latte, said it was worlds better than Starbucks and tasted...More

Well the local coffee shop sales to new owners and they decided to increase prices on the entire menu right away. More than 40% in most cases. No longer local owners. So dissapointed. No new items, let's just incrase prices. Yes, they can do what...More

This is one of the few places to eat breakfast or lunch that is not in a casino. I would recommend this if you have children with you. Love the coffees and teas. The food is average, good atmosphere.
