Overall, I like it. The place is much bigger than it appears. The setting is not all that inviting and is sort of strange, fitting I suppose! I did not find it to be a place I'd spend a lot of time, but that does...More

First time at venue-it is a great place to hear live music. Intimidate setting without feeling crowded. Parking was the only issue-we had to park several blocks away due to size of crowd.

Had a regular coffee (comes with free refill) and muffin. They also had a quiet room, which was nice. I also liked the ample parking lot.
