    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!

    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

    I'm a big fan of Korean style cafes because I like the decorations and some of the Korean desserts (misugaru latte!). The coffee and wifi here is also much better than Starbucks.

    Red velvet latte is ridiculously tasty - I believe it is topped with crunchy pieces of the red velvet liege waffle, which brings me to my next point: there is an an astounding selection of waffles!

    "Red Velvet Latte"... You can't call something a latte if there's no espresso in it.

    Baristas have attitude. Tell you one thing then call you a liar when you call them on it. Great coffee if you can put up with the attitude.

    Get a table in the back room of the caffe. Better lighting and cozier ambiance than the scene upstairs.
