An enjoyable variety of coffees and pastries to munch on in a friendly environment...paper reading, homework, friendly chat with a buddy, etc. The only disappointment is that I can't get their spicy holiday Mexican style coffee all year long...I miss the fiery aftertaste with the coffee flavor undercurrent.

We wanted to try this place since we don't have them at home. Worst coffee ever, tasted old and was not sweet at all. I got a iced caramel high rise. I will stick with Starbucks
