Great breakfast set & Good coffee. I love the breakfast set. Hash brown was really nice. One of the better ones.

“Good coffee bad aglia olio”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

The coffee was nice, sandwich was so so, spicy aglio olio was very bad! Seems like eating maggie mee! I will visit again only for coffee but not foods.

“Not bad!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

The decor is interesting. Food so and so. I have been here twice and service was good. The first time i went there was when i accidentally stumbled in when they newly opened. The service then was superb. Not as good now but still not bad. The coffee is nice, nice place to relax with friends.

“Not sure what the hype is about”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

The decor outside caught our eye so we ventured in. Was disappointed with the menu spread (but then again it is a coffee bar). Even then the cafe food spread was quite boring. Decided to just have coffee. Came in interesting mug but that was it. Good crowd with some people playing jenga. Don't know what the hype is about the coffee. Wait staff behind counter was ok.

“Less is More Part 98 - Cold is Not Cool”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

The designer did an excellent job with the interiors. Warm brick, interestingly upholstered arm chairs and sofas, retro fittings and lights, hipster murals and slogans on the walls, polished cement floors, etc. All the "IN" elements are checked off and geared up for hanging out and chillaxing.

The food is formulaic and focuses on comfort-style staples like no-brainer "homemade" sandwiches, pastas, soups, lots of coffee & tea varieties, several dessert choices. A couple of BBQ meats are available presumably for the really hungry or particularly carnivorous. Most are well put together, of decent to generous portions, nice quality and satisfying. Prices are pretty upmarket but does commensurate with the locale. BTW you place your orders at the counter, pay for it and they will send the orders to your table when ready.

So you have a great place and decent food and you'd think that the owner/operator would be the type of people you'd maybe like to hangout with too. You'd be SO WRONG! There's three of them there and we were not sure if they were family members but they were constantly chattering in a foreign language. No smiles, just COLD indifference, no hellos, no thankyous, no goodbyes, no greetings, NOTHING! This had to be the unfriendliest bunch EVER. They never should be in this type of business - what a shameful waste!
