When you enter Lantern, you might be fooled into thinking it’s a small storefront serving espresso to grab and go. Don’t get me wrong, the coffee is great. But, step past the counter and the lower level opens up into a spacious oasis where you...More

Wonderful coffee bar. Order at the counter when you come in. Although you can get your coffee to go, it's best enjoyed by heading down a couple steps and taking a seat in their comfortable lounge. Good for relaxing, people watching, and reading. Chill out...More

As the title suggests, the prices at the Lantern were fair prices and worth the cost. The environment is great, made for a great place to read and study for school. There isn't a lot of seating available, but the seating they offer is quite...More
