    The place got bigger you get less attention from the staffs. Mediterranean salad was very bland and 90% was lettuce, a wrong choice. The coffee used to be refill, but I don't think it is anymore.

    The coffee was too sour and burned, definitely not a coffee destination. The cappuccino was also far too strong for an espresso BASED drink. The water also smelled? It's like a Twilight Zone episode.

    Great place but tiny. Get there early on Sunday so you don't have to struggle to walk and move around the huge baby strollers people insist on bringing in to the shop.

    The "c" latte was divine - I didn't have to add anything to it! And I am normally a heavy cream and sugar girl.
