    Sit at one of the green tables outside and make fun of all the webnerds sitting in the park...even though you're one yourself.

    Caffe Centro runs an express window that is sometimes (not always) faster than standing in line indoors. Try the counter panini when you're in a hurry.

    Best coffee cake in town. They don't always have and it goes quick when they do. If you're special you will get to experience it. Good luck.

    Cool little spot in South Park. If line is too long and all you want is a drip, you can grab a cup and drop amount in provided box. No need to wait for cashier.

    The only reason to go here is to eat in the park. But you don't have to go here to do that. So you should go somewhere else. Unless you like waiting in line. Then this is a really good spot.
