    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?

    Stephanie Mattos · December 25, 2013

    The chai is great. Was pleasantly surprised here after getting used to the bland stuff at Starbucks.

    You're better off going to Starbucks when you get to your destination. This place is slow.

    this place is typically great.. but how come when I order a medium latte I basically get the size of a small in a bigger cup? rude.
