    Hey Café Descartes, you should join Freebie! It’s pretty rad and the benefits are great for both you and me. Check it out!

    The people watching makes up for the not so great lattes & mochas.

    The bathroom situation here is scary so escort your woman when she needs to go. They will not announce they're closing and will just lock the doors so watch the time. Great coffee however!

    Well, at least half of the staff is friendly. Too bad only two people are working. Could also explain the tortoise speed.

    Drink Starbucks instead. Service is slow, pastries are not fresh, and coffee is sub par

    The Mexican mocha sucks. Doesn't taste of coffee and the barista didn't even fill my cup. -_-

    Slow staff, too sweet coffee, bland chai. Maybe it's just an off day...
