The coffee is great but the staff seems a little stuck up and pretentious. It looks like someone put a lot of work into the design but skipped out on the furniture and found some couches off the side of the road.

Nice location, great decor and friendly staff, but I'm afraid the coffee was too bitter for me (similar to other reviewers comments). We tried 2 different coffees and both tasted bitter and over roasted (IOHO of course). So overall a very nice place with great...More

Popped in here for a quick espresso. Servers were friendly and the espresso was properly pulled. Looked like a good place to hang out for a bit - quieter than most coffee joints. Loved the huge safe in the room off to the side.
