but how much money someone puts into a business(or anything) isn't relative to someones right to criticize it on a message board.
That's a fair statement. My point is, I'm just guessing here, they probably spent 100-250,000$ to make what was the nicest coffee shop in town (& they serve food too!) the day it opened. The bathrooms are nicer than most coffee shops in town! They've been open (only) 3 months so, yes, the service should be getting better by now. (If you had shopped at Goner or Shangri-la 3 months after the opening, I don't think you would have been too impressed).
Did I mention they have fresh-squeezed juice?
Anyone who spends that much effort/money making such an attractive locale (indoor & outdoor dining) will get their service bugs worked out. It's not fine dining, but it's good food on a limited menu, and as I said, fresh donuts, best coffee, homemade icecream, fresh squeezed juice. I have yet to see anyone else in this town put forth such an effort on coffee shop environment & food. I'm sure the bugs in the service will go away.
If you haven't tried it, go grab a cup of coffee, milkshake, mexican coke, donut, or cookie and see for yourself. If it's not up to your standards, stick with what you like. I have no doubt in my mind that the service will improve, and I also would love to see the menu expand, but it's already tops in my book for the above listed items. Does any other coffee shop in town bake their own donuts???????? Tough town!
