    Hidden library isn't all that quiet if you're looking to read or work - bring headphones!

    You have to order another item if you want another wifi code. Not cool.

    Aside from blue bottle's New Orleans style, this is the most consistently amazing, rich iced coffee I've ever had. Get the largest size or you will be UNHAPPY later.
