I loved this spot! They have great coffee, scrumptious food, and the logo is actually a caricature of the owner's visage! I appreciate the attention to detail each staff member gave my orders, thank you!

Great coffee and atmosphere! Highly recommend. I had the Dirty Girl which is half coffee, half hot chocolate (basically a mocha as I chose bold coffee). Everyone I was with also loved their choices.

After having gone 2.5 days without Starbucks, we stumbled into Mean Cup. It is reasonably priced coffee, but doesn't quite carry the octane I require.
