Great coffee, delicious baked goods. Full of the campus crowd, there was even someone conducting an interview next to us on one of our visits (we went both mornings that we were in town). Very friendly service. Nice café tables and chairs. When I remarked how delicious a fruit and nut scone was, the server behind the counter thanked me -- she'd been up early baking them herself. Nearly across the street from Starbucks - go here instead. If I recall correctly, it may be a cash business.

Unicorn cafe is a typical cosy sidewalk cafe with outside tables and people sitting working on their laptops. The coffee is freshly ground and the variety is good.

This was a great stop after the farmers market. The food was fresh and the sandwiches are a delightful blend. It is definitely a college hangout which my daughter thought was cool. Make sure you bring your debit card or cash. I thought for a cafe it was a bit pricey but then again you pay for good food.

This coffee house was recommended by a local. Our group of three ordered an espresso, a cappuccino, and a latte, and each drink was very good. The coffee house uses Colectivo coffee beans, which is an excellent Milwaukee-based coffee roaster. The setting was a pleasant, typical university coffee house. We enjoyed it.

Nice and friendly staff. Welcoming and very relaxed. Good beagles but the grilled sandwich was a bit mediocre.
