The coffee selections are overpriced and the food is very average. I've tried many items and the food was always lackluster. The prices are way too high for what is offered. If you want less expensive coffee, that's just as good, turn the corner and...More

This is fabulous little spot that I would frequent daily if I lived in the area! I wasn't impressed by the product as much as I fell in love with the atmosphere... and they have soy milk!

This place was recommended to us by a local and it turned out to be a great find. The pizzas, salads, and subs were delicious with fresh ingredients and flavor. The service was friendly and the atmosphere comfortable and relaxed. Will definitely return.

I was there before the new management, I look forward to checking out the updated changes. The sandwiches were always great and the staff makes a great latte. Perfect as a chill spot to utilize their wifi and relax.
