Filled with locals reading, typing and sketching, this coffee house is a perfect place to hangout. The food is very good, the coffee is excellent, and the ambiance is classic. We decided we would definitely return here the next time we visit Providence.

Stopped in for a coffee based on reviews and loved my Caramel Latte! Great taste! Coffee art with soy milk is a challenge, not here. Will Come through again on our next visit.

Always grab a latte or coffee "black" when I am in Providence. It is a casual spot with many teens working on their laptops and chatting in groups. Good vibe- but usually no open seats. The staff is friendly and there are a lot of...More
