We stumbled upon this as not much else was open. They had excellent coffee (even soymilk and almond milk for non-dairy lattes) and drinks (local craft beer on tap). Happy hour is 4-6. There are music nights (see photo).

Lovely place, full of character and friendly staff. I drank many an IPA here (such an exciting discovery after way to much Gallo) while doing Spanish homework. Definitely recommend.

This is really more of a lunch place than dinner. Mostly sandwiches, salads, and snacks. Food is okay- not amazing but not terrible either. There are veggie options.
