    Never thought they had bad food, until I tried a coffee cake. #terrible Also, THEY NEED TO STOP RUNNING OUT OF PUMPKIN MUFFINS!

    Great mocha and the cucumber cream cheese is great on a nicely toasted bagel.

    There's a line outside of the door right now and good luck to get a place to sit. A bit too small of a space to be this busy

    Try the espresso of the week. It costs the same as the regular stuff and it's always good.

    Bring a portfolio folder, and some old glossy technical flier, to make your own window blind to shield your screen from the glare.

    Be careful standing up from the tables. I just saw a woman bonk her head on a light. Granted, she looked extremely hipster doing it, due to her kewl reaction, but still, tuck and roll, my babies.

    It seems like the expresso shake is the most inconsistant drink they make here, never know how it'll turn out each time you order it.
