All was wonderful. We arrived later in the day (2:30) but we were made to feel very welcome. There were about 8 people in the shop but the woman working inside took her time to welcome everyone and was very efficient. She offered us samples of the new infused syrups and we bought 2 (which I never would have had if I not tried it …especially the jalapeno! But it was SO GOOD!). We had a great time peeking at the well-maintained trails and our 1 year old got to pet the doggie, Phoenix. 10/10 we will recommend and we will be back! – Anonymous

We had such a great time participating in the making of this video in 2022. Thank you, Kodiak!
