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!

Koffee Kwotes / Trivia

Studies tell us the human body will absorb only 300 milligrams of caffeine at a given time. Additional amounts are cast off and will provide no additional stimulation. The human body dissipates 20% of the caffeine in the system each hour.

Bitter Brew

Famed Chef Anthony Bourdain wrote the epitaph of a dying cafe in Kitchen Confidential:
"The most dangerous species of owner ... is the one who gets into the business for love."

Freedom:

Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.
