“Great atmsophere and food, lousy parking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2011

Every time I come here, it's packed, and why not? The coffee, baked goods and ice cream are terrific. Even better, the setting is one of the best in the East Lansing area, sunken, with tons of big comfortable chairs. There's also a pretty terrace in the good weather and the view across the street is of a lovely neighborhood. But you need to be warned: the tiny parking lot is a nightmare. There's very little space to park or even drive all the way through through unless you have a compact car. There's metered parking a few blocks away, but why should you have to park off-site and walk?
