Great service, AWESOME coffee selection and super friendly staff! What's not to love about being surrounded by books and great food? - This cafe could be my home-away-from-home! My wife and I ate the chicken panini and had a masala chai - both were SUPERB!...More

Great ice coffee. They also have white coffee beans that have double the caffeine of regular coffee. I don't live here, wish it was a chain so i could get their coffee other places.
