Fine espresso and other coffee drinks, but safety still has indoor seating off the table.

Their coffee is excellent, though it's sad that you can no longer sit inside due to the pandemic. Still a must try.

The staff were so nice! I love the flexibility of having a coffee made here with several milk alternatives such as oat milk and different sweetener options as well. ?

Just okay for a Pour over. No pastries only little scones I think were for customers with dogs. (There's a nice Sweet shop across the street). We sat outside since it's still closed due to Covid, actually due to short staffing the owner said. No sun umbrellas on the tables outside in the direct sun. Loved the shop decor.

Good coffee in a nice location. Worth the stop.

Today was my first time coming here and Rie was our barista and they were absolutely lovely! I gave them full jurisdiction over my tea and they prepared me a strawberry and rose black tea with cream, I cannot recommend enough! Please keep this flavor on the menu! It’s phenomenal and perfect if you’re looking for something refreshing and light. Also Rie was very sweet and made a very relaxing and comforting atmosphere, and I will absolutely be back! I have no idea how Ember and Forge slipped under my radar but I will be a frequent customer in the future! Thank you Rie!

They're not open on Sundays. Business hours need to be updated. Also, I've been here about 5 times and I've never seen any walk up window. You just go inside, place your order, and you can either leave or dine outdoors. Not sure if the indoor lobby is open since the chairs are always flipped upside down.

Good espresso downtown Eerie. The space is nice (but not yet open for sit in, it seems). We had a cappuccino and ice latte, and both were good.


coffee shop with great selections and excellent service. they know their product and are very glad to help you select something. if you're intimidated by coffee shops and lingo, this is a great place as the staff are patient and very helpful. they will explain their processes and products to be sure you're happy with your coffee/tea.

Great coffee and great customer service from heather. Way better than Starbucks.

Very limited options but coffee itself was good quality. Just bummed to see how dead the place was for a Saturday morning.

Kari Cudicio

It’s one of my favorite afternoon work walk locations! The staff is always super friendly, helpful and wonderful! They even converted my tea drinking husband to a coffee lover!

Patrick Gillen

Great selection! I’ve tried most of the menu and it’s all top notch. The baristas are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. The shop always has good music playing and amazing, local art on the walls!

Lauren Gillespie

Outstanding customer service. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. Delicious options and beautifully designed interior. The owner often highlights local artists and community meetings.

Megan Behr

Always great service every time I visit. Ordered coffee to serve at a birthday party and they helped me figure out what I wanted and then went above and beyond to make sure I was a satisfied customer.
