I really enjoyed studying here as an undergrad, as they were open until midnight and have WiFi. They had many chai options and local musicians who'd perform here. It's really too bad it closed, it was a great place.

Okay. So I don't drink coffee- disclaimer. However, I had the best light-roast cup of coffee there, followed by the first coffee drink where I thought to myself, "I could sip this all day." They make a half cold coffee half lemonade drink that is...More

The lighting is very eco-friendly so not the brightest as other coffee shops have. They do have wifi but the Barista does have an attitude issue. Parking is on neighbouring street
