They have the best coffee, great service and nice atmosphere too. It's in a great location downtown and I love that they are open late on the weekends. It's a good hang out spot for the younger, college-aged kids.

This coffee place is the best. The environment is chill and comforting. Mix-matched furniture makes it a cool place to hang out and catch up. The free wifi makes it an even better place to study. And then there's the great coffee. Wonderful!
