What I liked: The quality of coffee. Price is pretty reasonable for what they serve, and because as a local, independent business. The establishment is quite clean. The baristas are somewhat quiet, yet friendly (but friendlier with more of the established, repeat customers, in which they seemed to know by name). The basic coffee was okay; but the flavored specialties (such as some Indian-spiced cappuccino?) is what sets them apart from other cafes.
What I didn't quite like: The assumption that you know what each type of coffee is & what it's characteristics is before ordering. It's almost intimating (and maybe that's why some other reviewer called it 'pretentious') with the over-simplified menu with just the list of names. Also, I'm more used to 'cozy-like' cafe atmospheres where there is more tables then solo, bar-stool set ups. This has a zen-like minimalism, feels airy yet empty. Not completely bad, just very different.
I didn't try the muffins and slices of bread available, but might the next time I swing by.
