Went here for early morning coffee (complicated orders of specialty lattes). They asked once and got it right immediately and quickly, I was so impressed. It's also great for a morning breakfast with great menu choices and super efficient wait staff. This is a delightful...More

Service with a smile and very friendly. I love that I can also walk in for Starbucks. I had an omelet for breakfast and it was amazing as well as the service.

We had breakfast each morning in the Cafe and it was very good. Service was slow and there didn’t seem to be an obvious reason why. Staff is friendly and apologetic for slow service.

Travelling with an infant proved a charm with the Cafe going out of their way to help with food and a highchair. The service was great and food good.

Charming cafe at the Pfister. The customer service was very friendly and helpful but not overly so. Good coffee, fresh fruits and veggies (we had an avocado toast), delicious. A bit overpriced but the atmosphere of the place is so nice it was worth it.
