Everyone was polite and nothing too negative was happening, but the whole feel of the place was just - at best- neutral. Almost no smiles in the place. Decidedly overcrowded, to be somewhat expected in such a small location, on less chilly days, the outside...More

We tried coffee, iced coffee, hot chocolate and iced tea and all were good. Atmosphere is a bit funky and beat up looking. Baristas were friendly. We sat outsider -- unfortunately there were three dogs -- one was not happy sharing the space with the...More

Nostalgic atmosphere both inside and outside to relax while you enjoy a perfect cup of coffee. Highly recommend this location.

Damn I hate it when the counter service person anywhere turns the POS screen around expecting to have a tip enyered. To me counter service is 'no tip' country. The venue and the products were good.

I had a double espresso, no milk, no sugar. Outstanding The lady I was with had some fancy version of coffee (a load of milk, sugars, flavors and toppings, so not really a coffee anymore I pointed out but a high calorie sugar snack) but...More
