From the Harry Potter-esque theme to the cozy, welcoming atmosphere, this new coffee shop has received rave reviews from locals and guests alike. Espresso, nitrogen-infused coffee & “cafe bites” are presented for your pleasure in this Harry Potter-inspired setting, and everything is delicious. It’s fun to look at all the decorations to find those secret hidden allusions as you sip some delicious brew (hint: their mocha and nutella lattes are outstanding but everyone has to try the butter brew latte). “Serious coffee with a touch of magic.”
