Dr. Insomniac’s offers freshly baked Scuffins - a combination of a scone and a muffin! The best of both worlds! My favorite is the Blackberry Almond. They are best right of the oven! This review is making me hungry!

I want this place to be better... but you're either a fanatic about good coffee and tea, or you're just cashing in on people desperate for any coffee on the corner. Sadly, the latter.

OK coffees; fair smoothies; veggie scramble was too spicy and dry. But a cool place to hangout, even if no free WiFi.

Met a group of friends and co-workers to discuss weekend plans. Had not been to this coffee shop before, but will definitely return. This is not a Starbucks with its glitz and high prices, but a collection of rooms connected to the front counter offering...More
