“Gem of a coffee place”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I've been buying coffee and all their food products for almost a year now. The service has always been great, especially with Nicole, and the prices are cheaper than anywhere else. However, they just shortened their hours, which is really inconvenient. As a result Nicole isn't there anymore, nor can I buy coffee or a snack at my usual 3 or 4 PM coffee break. So, I do hope this is just a temporary move, and they go back to the way it was before.

“I never again want to go to any other coffee shop”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

FRIENDLY STAFF. Nicole is the best. She is such a treat that even if everything else was rotten, I'd still come here. The rest of the staff is good too. GREAT PRICE. It's way cheaper then the full service Starbucks on the other side of the plaza plus they take care of their local businesses with discounts (my company gets 15% off). HIGH TECH. You can check in with a mobile app that rewards you with free coffee, specialty drinks, or food more often than the Starbucks gold card. GOOD FOOD. Their food trashes on the other Starbucks. The tuna on croissant is delicious, and it's only $5 with a bag of chips. In a plaza filled with food choices, they still manage to stand out.

I've been working in the plaza for 6 years and have been waiting for a place like this. I never again want to go to any other coffee chop.

Nicole makes a great cup of coffee. She is also very pleasant and professional. This has become my favorite coffee spot and I don't normally drink coffee. Now, I'm hooked!!

“I do not need coffee that badly”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

In the lobby of the Holiday Inn, the Press Coffee Bra- really the place in the lobby where you get a cup of Starbucks. Well Eliot, behind the counter was working there. I asked for a coffee Grande, he informed me that “You can’t, we only have a tall or venti.” I thought how strange I could not have a grande, the medium size – after all he had coffee so pour a smaller or larger one. I asked why because I was puzzled at this and he was not stating why I had to change my order. He only then told me he ran out of cups. I said just put the medium size in a large cup- Elliott refused. So now I was to either go without, or purchase something in size and price I did not want. Why do I now have to purchase a smaller cup of coffee or a larger one- and waste some because I did not want the larger size- and waste money?
I know this sounds petty, and yes I know this is just coffee, was Eliot just not thinking of the customer first, or is this management technique to push something onto the customer they did not ask for. This was not an unreasonable request.
