    Known for the caves, chill ambiance, good for late night, pre- or post-plans, dates, AWESOME desserts, tea variety, and coffee menu. Been going here for years, still love it!

    Get in early so that you can chat with the really great people who work there.

    Ask for a booth in the back room (a 'cave'). It's dimly lit, very private, perfect for a date. I also highly recommend the deserts. The dharma is my favorite.

    $12 minimum per person to sit in the cave. A party of four, we'd probably spend over $100 in that place. The lack of class is undeserving of my business. Management cheapened the experience

    Haven't been there in YEARS but from what I remember this cave (literally) is an awesome place to end a good night with some good desserts & coffee. My all time favorite dessert there...THE ORION!

    Everything is totally over-priced and the service sucks!

    Impeccable service, excellent food and coffee. I love the hot chocolate with chili, the deserts, and the Caesar Dallas. The decor is absolutely phenomenal!

    Nice atmosphere, good shakes, service is hit or miss. It's cozy/darker lighting. It's open late which is very nice and good when you want better than a Starbucks hangout. Lots of people on dates here.

    When the weather gets warmer, ask to sit outside. The caves are awesome, but the outdoor seating is even better.

    Out front, my DB meter read a range of 88 to 113, spending most of the time 101-103. Wait staff should wear ear protection.
