    Love sitting out on their Patio! Perfect on a cool fall day.

    Good coffee, but sometimes service can be very slow (20 minutes of standing in line and waiting for the coffee), and the WiFi isn't very useful. But otherwise a great place for a relaxing time.

    Good coffee and coffee drinks. Try the White Dog. Even better place to hang out with friends, make new friends, play games, or go for a walk.

    Sad, I used to love it here. Now the staff are stuck up and rude. With the exception of Jared (sp?), I haven't been treated nicely by any. Makes one want 2 go to Starbucks where they at least pretend.

    Bring cash to avoid a card fee. If you're doing something that requires more than fifteen inches of space, be prepared to wait a bit for a booth.
