Quick service, clear choices and great product!. We dropped in here for coffees and a sandwich. We could not have made a better choice. Lovely sandwiches for lunch followed by a second coffee, of course!

Good coffee, fair price (not cheap but fine). Humitas and the pastry options are good too. Orange and tangerine fresh juice are a good option.

Coffees are fairly decent and the free wifi works pretty far away too. Staff could be a little more polite though...

I'm 13 and I went in to buy an iced coffee and they laughed at me for not speaking Spanish and being short 10¢. You don't make fun of someone for not speaking a language and not having enough money. The black/Jamaican lady was so mean. I wanted to speak to the manger but I bet it's run by 5... More
