This is a popular coffee and sandwich shop on campus. It is on Regent just east of Orchard. Don't believe the Trip Advisor map! Brewed or fancy coffees, breakfast sandwiches.

I have been on a quest to visit all of the coffee shops in Madison, and this has been my favorite shop. The decor is extremely cute and quirky, and the espresso is fantastic. A cappuccino here is much cheaper than other cappuccinos in the area, and the baristas always fill the cup all the way to the top! Service... More

While the interior is quite comfortable and welcoming, the back patio is an added treat with chair and tables nestled in the shade.

Very cute and intimate space that smells delicious. The smell of coffee and waffles almost lulls you to sleep, it is that comforting. It must have excellent acoustics because it is quiet in there even with people talking. Or perhaps all the patrons were being considerate of one another and simply keeping their voices down. The tiny back patio area... More
