“I'm DONE trying”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

Always SLOW. If I walked (past tense) if there was 2 or more people in line, I would never stop. Now, I will never stop. Coffee bar prices are too high and small latte too weak.
No one there seems to have any sense of urgency. I get the whole laid back thing, but who is managing???
My first visit I actually walked out without buying anything. The entire time I was waiting, one person was serviced at the counter. I tried again and again. No improvement.
I was never courages to try any food item other than a simple pre maide muffin. I wasn't prepared to wait even longer.

tasty sandwiches, decent drinks, and free wi fi. the decor could be more comfy, though, and the hours could be longer.
