This is a nice looking small coffee shop in downtown Oly -if you want an alternative to the ubiquitous SBs.But it's not great.it's very noisy -hard to make conversation,music for amusement of staff and hangers on - not customers. hard to find a table - but here were loads of people on laptops nursing cups- wonder how this place makes it . I ordered a cappuccino and got 2 shot exp with a little foam on top. My cookie was only ok.
Shape up !!

We have a very small space and try to make sure tables are available, music varies from worker to worker so can't please everyone, and that's ok. Next time you get an unsatisfactory drink, let the staff know. We try to pull the best shots and make sure our drinks are always the best we can make. As a place that takes great pride in our coffee, we like to keep our drinks traditional. Cappuccinos are small, about 6 oz with about 4 hours of steamed milk and milk foam, and Macchiatos are a double shot marked with foam. So make sure we are on the same page drink wise, and if isn't for you tell us.

The place is cozy with not a lot of seating but has delicious drinks named after zombies, a friendly staff, and a charming atmosphere with good music and a Tim Burton-esque decor.
