    chill place, hipster vibe, music talk. i wouldn't say that either the food or the coffee stands out, and the service is languid at best. that said, if convenience is important ..

    If you're visiting from Europe, never ever dare to try their croissants. Chocolate croissant has barely chocolate in it and mine was at least 2 days old! Their latte is OK. Cosy atmosphere. Overpriced

    This place is a giant cash register. Want a good place to study? All of Rice is already here. No room for you, unless you arrive at 7am. Then you can relax on their broken, wobbly furniture.

    Slightly on the expensive side, but there is always a spot to sit unlike some other local shops.

    It is too crowded. no place to sit, music is so loud, like a club and not very good for working. If they fix these things, it would be great.

    The cajeta latte is the best latte I've had. And their cold brew is top notch. it's a great place to study. Lots of tables and chairs. Usually more people with laptops than just socializing.

    It can get crowded, so come early in the evening or late in the afternoon for good seating! It usually has a nice quiet vibe!

    It's not literally a black hole in space, it's just a cup that looks like a black hole until it's empty then it's an empty cup but who would name a place that?

    This place is almost always unmanageably overcrowded, thanks to an abundance of Rice students. Time to move on.

    This place needs a lot of work. Things to start with: replace the little school children wobbly chairs along the window. Put up decent art along your walls. Say goodbye to the Lohans...

    It might be hard to find an outlet and the chairs closest to outlets are sometimes the least comfortable. Pretty sure they bought these from an old high school. It's all thrift shop furniture....
