I have had many pumpkin spice lattes and by far this one from Northern light espresso bar is the best!!! Service was prompt and the barista was very friendly. I also had the maple scone which was delicious!

Really nice coffee shop in the heart of downtown Scranton. As has been said on here before, great place to come and sit with a laptop for business or schoolwork. When I was in town the special they had for spring was a "Cadbury Creme...More
