    Washing options are correct and you can grab you breakfast in the 22 minutes you wait for your clothes:)

    Finally, a laundromat that pays attention to basic human comforts. It's clean, cozy, not overpriced, and the cafe in front is a huge plus.

    And fyi, if you want to drink EtOH you need to sit inside or outside along the windows, but not next to the street/parket. Nice not to tell our friend until after she's sitting outside . . .

    Sad, no pancakes or french toast after after 11am. Had the Brain on Drugs, egg sandwich - love the nod to the old school PSA . . . but it's an over easy egg, not scrambled. :/

    Ever-vigilant doufus employees + do-gooder customers are seriously devoted to their mission of sniffing out junkies and loiterers! Ends up being worse than if the place were a shooting gallery. enjoy!

    New washers are a huge improvement. Always a fun evening for laundry night. Some performances are awkward, but some guy just killed it with a poetry slam history of rap.
