I never write bad reviews, but due to the changes the ownership has made I think it is important they know and also potential .customers. When I last went there I found that the meal option foods I could not eat and with everything pre-mixed...More

Amazing spacious cafe. Only negative is barista station confusing on where to order and then pick-up was difficult and then competing with drive-through window for service. So recommendation would be to just use the drive-through widow for best service.

Huge selection of great food; multiple varieties of tasty quiche, good chili, espresso drinks, a heavenly chocolate dessert bizarrely named 'coco la jaime'; friendly staff, plenty of seating. There's also a salad bar, retail items, and a small grocery section. Lots of parking. It'd be...More

I agree with the previous comment. It is not a sit down as such restaurant, although the food options fit your bill. It is more relaxed college feeling. Check out the web site for their look.
