    So much space! A great place to know about in a busy, crowded area!

    My wife "lost" her backpack containing wallet and passport at this fine establishment. The staff "found" it only after a lot of persistence and help from the cops. Avoid like the plague.

    Plenty of seating. The library room is awesome -- I love the feeling while I'm enjoying a hot cup of coffee and a pastry.

    They messed up all 4 coffee orders and were out of waffles (9am on a Wed). On the plus side, it wasn't crowded!

    Terrible service. The wait is excruciating for an espresso. Wouldn't have gone here if Stumptown wasn't closed

    If you are going to attend a show close and it's getting chilly is a great spot to wait. There is also enough space in the back to work or have fun with friends. Great decoration!

    Sub par. The pistachio dipped waffle was what I've been dreaming of. But the Broken waffle machine was inexcusable. Staff was inattentive.

    Cupcakes and bread are ok. The "speciality" are waffles but they were not baking them "at this time". Aweful baristas, not a pinch of kindness with customers, I recommend the cupcakes to go.

    The WORST coffee place ever. No restrooms, the lady who took our order was super annoying and making faces. They imitate Starbucks on a lower level. I will never come back.

    2day service was awful, 30 min 4 2 waffles, chai latte & vanilla frap, they gave me the frap 1rst so it melted before they finish 30 min later with my order, I was the only one when they take my order

    The food and coffee are terrible, but there aren't many places in midtown with wifi, outlets, and space. If you need a spot to do some work in the area, this is one of your best bets.

    I tried their cappuccino and...just not for me. They have many bakery options tho. Because of this one location, you may not find a seat (sometimes) although they have a huge seating area.
