The bagel sandwich i got was burnt. We were in a hurry so I didn't complain. Uncomfortable chairs, wobbly table.

Went to most of the coffee shops, and this was the best one we visited. Went back 3 times. Great coffee, coffee drinks. Also had very good breakfast, especially the burritos-and I'm a breakfast burrow snob!

A lot of coffee shops have iffy food. This place has excellent food, and a solid variety, which is not exactly apparent from their website. We visited twice during our week stay and found the spinach quiche excellent, as well as the sandwiches. The oatmeal...More
