    They turn Wi-Fi off on weekends, only found this out after ordering and sitting down. Such a bad decision made since I searched Wi-Fi cafe on yelp, and this place was list number one.

    For $2.00 you get a perfect cup o' Joe. If you're feeling like you need to clog an artery, try the creamy Venetian hot chocolate. It's a bit like mousse but served in a cup and you don't get a spoon.
