    Best place to study, open until midnight. Food and drinks are all great; Recommend the au lait and the veggie sandwich but the bakery selection is lacking. Tons of tables & ports to plug your labtop.

    Their hummus wrap is amazing. Also, I love getting sweet tea with my meal just so I can suck on the peppermint while I drink it. Free mint flavoring!

    The password is blackberry. Get the bean wrap and the perfect woman. Unless you want a cold drink, in which case you should get the prefect man.

    Make sure you refinance your home before buying coffee here. Could have flown to Colombia and picked the beans myself for I paid.

    Mochas have the potential to only be good at the top of the cup... And a mixture of espresso grounds and mocha syrup at the bottom. Ew

    Looking for a vegan/vegetarian option? Look no more and try the Portobello Wrap. The pesto is to die for.

    The salad they put on the wraps got mushy in its big plastic container, tasted kind of off, and I think it made me sick.
