Service was great , coffee was ok, however very very overpriced paid 6.50 for 20 ounce Mexican latte. A regular cup was 3.00, I did note that you could save .50 by bringing your own cup.More

The coffee here is fresh and strong. The furniture is uncomfortable and the other clientele is often unkempt and sketchy. My recommendation is to get your beverage to go and scoot outta there. Never tried the food so I can't comment.
