The works is consistent in its service of a good hot breakfast, lunch, salads and special sandwiches. The location and free wifi make it a center for meetings, after work out powwows and a warm seat for those who need it in the winter.

We were heading out of town for the holiday weekend, and we stopped in to grab some coffee and bagels on our way out. My bagel and latte were pretty good, but nothing particularly special. I wish they had some more adventurous cream cheese flavors or something. Not bad for a quick breakfast to go.

Stopped in for a cup of soup and a sandwich - really delicious - kindy pricey but it hit the spot. The cafe is large - with a lot of funky seating - we would return.
