Looking up the street to the left (south), one can catch a glimpse of our neighbor, "Slicks' Tavern" and a block further away is State Street. The Mohawk River is 2.5 blocks north of the Cafe.

People of all ages and walks of life visit our cafe, and while some enjoy a quiet book while sipping their tea, it is not unusual to hear or participate in a lively discussion about politics, the cost of gas, religion, the correct serving temperature of beer, or any other imaginable topic. Our guests are an eclectic bunch. Join us!

Visit our Friends & Neighbors

Dangerous on Decaf

a trio of friends playing music and having fun!

We cruise the blues, razz the jazz, mug the jug, fatten the Latin, croak the folk and love to joke. With guitars, banjo, drums, Uke and mountain dulcimer, we are the Yin, Yang and Jung of the Sandwich generation.

Bicycling:

I am afraid it is a non-starter. I cannot even use a bicycle pump [let alone a computer].
