    The newly renovated space and revamped menu is awesome. If you haven't been in a while, be sure to give it another look!

    Stop by and grab some of the yum yums from Huntington Kitchen! I personally recommend the Strawberry Banana granola (the When Peanut Butter Meets Chocolate is a close 2nd!)

    Café Helios brews Counter Culture Coffee which is always a good start. The cafe is in a great location and has a good atmosphere.

    Order up an awesome double Carmella - and don't be afraid to chat up your barista - everyone's awesome! Settle in with your Carmella and a cjopy of the latest Independent. Perfect break from life!

    So darn good. They really know how to make a good latte. They also play Sirius XMU, which makes my day. :)

    Gets a little crowded around 9am, but solid coffee and the sandwiches are actually really good as well

    Order a Latte. Ask for Art on it. Sip slowly. Ask if they have Finca Kilimanjaro Beans. If they do, take some home. If not, try the Keta or something else! Yummm! Read more

    Try the Brie And Apple Sandwich - Delicious as usual - the salad was a perfect accompaniment.

    Watch out for the disgruntled employees, angry hipsters, and surcharges for everything that'll make your latte go from $4.00 to $6.00 easily. Seems like a high cost for attitude.

    Good for a morning meeting but hard to get s table from 5-7pm unless weather is good, allowing people to spill outside on the patio.

    If you are sitting at the back table working, and you want power for your laptop, hop down under the table, and you'll see power all over the place! Most people are surprised when I point it out!
