My favorite place to hang out is on the second floor, just be careful on those steps! It's loud but after a while you get accustomed to the background noise and it becomes just that. It's dark and the atmosphere is laid back, something that I personally enjoy. I also personally thought that the drinks and snacks were a bit... More

Great ambiance and good place to read a book and enjoy your coffee/tea. I do recommend to those who want to classify/arrange their thoughts.

Such a cute cafe in the middle of the city. The drinks and pastries were very delectable and the cafe had nice character.

Hipster central- blah. The house coffee was decent- a little weak for my taste. The setting was nice with couches, an upstairs and patio. Music was way to loud- i went to chill with friends over coffee not hang out in a crowded loud "bar" where you have to yell across the table. Parking was almost non-existent....we ended up parking...

Cool place to hangout with your friends or chill by yourself! Agora is a coffee/wine bar with an awesome Greek-themed interior. In addition to coffee and wine, the bar also sells various goods including European chocolates that you can't find in regular markets. Unfortunately, I cannot give this place a higher rating. The mocha latte I had was awfully bland... More

This is a great place to relax, study, and hang out. There's two floors, plus the large patio area, so matter how crowed it gets, you will always find somewhere to sit, good luck if you want to sit on the couch up stairs near the T.V. though. They have unlimited coffee (blue cup), for about for bucks, and a... More

I discovered this place recently. Until recently, the only place that came to my mind for the midnight coffee used to be the Post Oak Starbucks which is open till 2 AM weekdays. The first thing one notices about the cafe is the gorgeous exterior and interior decor. Coffee was good. I tried the espresso drink. They have a large... More

Get there early if you want a good seat and are in for the long haul. The coffee is good and people nice- parking can be bad.
