Enjoyed my mocha latte while sitting on stools facing the street. A nice selection of baked goods including scones from two local bakeries. Definitely pricier than coffee shops in other cities (except San Francisco). Probably as all non-chain coffee shops offer pourover only.

Snobby baristas, would not customize your order, “take it or leave it” kind of service.. I would leave it... sour taste of the coffee and the entire experience.

Stopped in on an afternoon spent in the city. Too busy, not worth the hassle. Ordered a coffee and muffin, neither were bad, just nothing special.
