    Excellent coffee, hot or iced, very efficient before the train. Located right in the station, and staff is good at moving the line through. Breakfast tacos are tasty, cheap and fast.

    One of the best places to test your trivia mettle early in the morning: if you get their daily trivia right, you get $.25 off your drink. Eco friendly, and who doesn't like frequent buyer cards?
