Although they are on the coast and right by the water the shop has a very original, earthy feel. Upon entering, I noticed the wood floors, quaint music playing and felt as though I had stepped into a shop along a side road in Maine. This to me was the perfect atmosphere because the shop holds an atmospheric value regardless of the season; it does not have to be a bright sunny spring day for one to want to stop in and grab a cup of Joe.
The service at Kiskadee was pretty good, everything we ordered came out to us in a timely fashion and the employees were polite and helpful. The first one that I attempted to get some information from about the coffee and the business itself was not that knowledgeable as she had only been working there a few months. However, she did refer me to the other woman who she was working with who was more knowledgeable. She informed me that Kiskadee is owned by two brothers, one who deals with the front end of the business and is there quite often (just not the weekend afternoon) and the other deals with the coffee aspect; this means acquiring the beans, machines and dealing with the roasters. All of their coffee is from Speedwell roasters in Plymouth that is actually right down the street from the shop. Most of their coffee is fair trade but not all of it, coming from areas allover such as Ethiopia, Brazil, Guatemala etc. Speedwell roasters is actually run in part by one of the brothers who is involved with Kiskadee which was quite interesting. All in all, this coffee shop was definitely a gem and a place I will be back too in the near future I am sure. I would recommend anyone who visits the area that "will not be seen until they have their caffeine", like the sign at the counter said, to go and check it out for themselves.
