Friends and I go here almost every week. They have the best gluten free muffins, cookies, and other light snacks I've tried. The coffee is wonderful! Their tea selection is top notch. The atmosphere is delightful and you can't beat the heated seat on a chilly morning. Absolutely my favorite coffee shop in Monterey!
