    A bit overpriced for microwaved bacon. The layout makes no sense (get your own coffee fixings, syrup, bathroom key, fight your way through the line to sit down because of the dining area barricade etc

    No substitutions on food and bitchy servers make this a no win. Go to elsewhere.

    Opened until 1am on Sundays. Very useful when you need to get an assignment sent to one of your professors and you don't have Internet service at the house.

    Definitely a food destination as well as a coffee shop, and when you're holed up working for hours, there's really nothing better than that. They're also on Pirq so you can snatch up a great deal!
