The atmosphere is really nice with good music. Has a fireplace (although no fire when I went). The tea was delicious (if you ask them to make you a London Fog, they will). Delicious little pastries. However, the workers were not that welcoming or hospitable. Not eager to go back because of that.

On my way to REI I stop in all the time. The baristas are great and the coffee is Intelligentsia. It is a regular stop in my morning routine. Definitely recommended, but the tables can fill up fast - get there early.

I visited here while visiting Pittsburgh. It seems like a quaint place with a very cool interior. I enjoyed all the artwork on the walls and the fact that pets were allowed in the establishment. The staff was also very friendly. I ordered a latte, and it was just alright. It wasn't bad, but I've had better lattes at other... More

This coffee house is very relaxing, homey and comfortable to enjoy a good cup of coffee with a tasty side of goodies like the toasted cranberry/walnut bread which I very much like. Relax and stay awhile, you will be glad you did...Hippie Bob

Our favorite place to hang out for coffee. We can even bring the dog! Great little place with an excellent outside patio area right off Carson Street. Great at all seasons. Dogs are even allowed inside. Nice selection of coffees and teas.

We had rented an AirBNB in South Side and came across this hidden gem of a coffee shop. It had all the comforts of a non-chain coffee shop, serving Intelligentsia coffee and great pastries as well. The service was very friendly, and was glad to have found this location. For an establishment that allows dogs, it was very clean!

The coffee, espresso, etc is smooth and very even flavored. The Oatmeal with fresh toppings is first class. Sorry its only served mornings. The staff is wonderful.

This place had one of the best cappuccinos I've ever had - and being NYC resident, that says a lot. The coffee is a delicious citi roast by intelligentsia, and they have loads of tea options. Croissants and other pastries are top notch and they have an oatmeal bar that is really worth checking out. Free wifi, big clean bathrooms,... More
