    Great Cafe and very nice people! You can sit outside or enjoy the nice tables inside. They have good coffee and fresh juices! Only downfall is it is cash only.

    The wifi password is their phone number. But don't expect to be able to do anything. The connection goes in and out and the speed is too slow. Web pages never load. The starbucks next door is faster.

    A good place to come to in the winter time, summer time, not so much. It's hot inside & their ceiling fans doesn't really do much. Go for take out or snag a seat by the open windows or outside area.

    Hummus sandwich is tasty. Iced tea is foul. Guys behind the counter are rude. We get it, its lunch, you're busy with takeouts. Don't make the people AT your cafe feel like they're inconveniencing you.
