This comfortable cafe has good coffee and baked goods with ample indoor and outdoor seating. I've met friends there a couple times because it is convenient and you can always find a free table (unlike Coupa).

Besides the very good sandwiches, omelettes and pastries, the ambience is low key and open to people catching up with each other, studying or simply enjoying the music played by a musician in the corner of the room. Loved the large bowls of coffee, too.
