    Prosciutto panini was excellent, but the pour over coffee was way too over roasted.

    Sit outside because AC inside is not very effective so when it is crowded it gets hot

    Need an extra kick on top of a spicy hot chocolate? Opt for a spicy mocha instead.

    I'm surprised this place is rated so high. Not sure about food, but the coffee here was not even close to the rating. If you are an espresso fan - avoid this place.
