“Very memorable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This place kinda reminded me of the little bohemian type coffehouses in Santa Cruz,Ca, which is closer to me than Cinci! I was visiting a good freind of mine who frequents the place. I never thought cucumber and salami would make a good sandwhich, but it sure did,yummmmmy! Had a very nice waitress and the place is a hip,rustic, upbeat place mainly for 20-somethings, but get by the nose peircings and tatoos, the food there is really good!

“Service and drinks fine, extremely noisy.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

If you want to be able to hear the people you're with, you might be disappointed. The last several times I've been there, it's been so noisy I couldn't hear my friend, who was sitting about 2 feet away.

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We love to go to local coffee shops in every city we visit but this one wasn't a favorite. Just wanting a coffee to go and not sitting down felt awkward. The staff acted like not many people wanted coffee to go. Decorations are a bit extreme and the place isn't the cleanest. To top it all off the coffee was okay but nothing worth going back for the next day.

“Great coffee and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

They have free wi-fi and great coffee. Their service is good and quick enough to stop in for a bite before seeing a movie at the Esquire. This is a college town / neighborhood so you will likely see a wide variety of people (so people watching will be part of the night's entertainment.)

“Great Coffee Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I used to visit this coffee place often when I was in school and I absolutely love this place. They have amazing coffee and very interesting coffee cocktail drinks. I have never really tried their food though.

Overall I would say this is a fine coffee place with great comfortable ambiance.
