Awesome coffee for a reasonable price and super quick. The minute you walk in the smell makes you want everything on the menu.

This is a cozy pleace. You can get the best environment if you want piece, silent place to have a cup of coffee or have an ice cream. Personnel are very friendly, smiling all the time. Prices are good. Must try.

Breaking New Grounds is inviting, which is probably the reason for being crowded most of the time. If you come with a laptop and need an outlet... there is a chance you won't. Otherwise, it's a really nice atmosphere in this small university town.
