“Comfy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2008

Great coffee shop with good food. Not a big fan of the pastries. Definitely hit or miss. It's got great ambiance and free internet. Kid friendly, especially in the afternoons and on the weekends. Unfortunately, its gotten more expensive and service can be slow. Music has been eclectic at times – in a bad way. Celine Dion followed by techno…..
