OH MY GOODNESS, Love my Indian Coffee…. I stopped in yesterday and you were so kind in offereing me a sample of the Indian coffee that you just roasted…. I love it and it will be at the top of my list when I run out….. Also, I must pass on that your cafe has the most comfortable environment I have ever experienced. The wait staff always smiles and pays attention to you. You know what you are doing when it comes to service, quality food and most important THE BEST COFFEE around. Stay around for a long, long time. I will always stop when going to Boston for that great cup of coffee.
Sincerely, Mary Leary
