Went to java depot for a meetup. The location is good, the staff pleasant and the atmosphere is really relaxed. Had a cappuccino and liked it.

I really liked the relaxed atmosphere and the juice and smoothie bar next door (same building). I had the coffee which was good, but the breakfast burrito was only ok.

While looking for Starbuck's we were guided to Java Depot. We ordered an iced tazo chai equivalent and a cafe mocha.

We had lunch today at Java Depot. To be honest, we would have never have found out about this place had it not been for a Living Social deal that we bought a few days ago.
