    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.

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    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.
