It was my first time at Knead. The coffee was amazing and love the fact that you can buy super fresh baked bread there as well and different type of bread.

We dropped in here recently and thoroughly enjoyed good coffee and a slice of something sweet. Sit at the counter outside to enjoy the local vibe. Service is friendly and efficient.
