    Fair trade coffee and tea house with light lunch and chocolate bars. Good location, good coffee, great people.

    Unexpected perk: they have private bathrooms down the hall. Just grab the appropriate key-on-a-spoon in front of the espresso machine.

    Don't you dare interrupt their work day with requests to exchange money for goods listed on-site. It's rude you hipster.

    Nice cafe. Style is more like your US west-coast coffee shop than a NYC hipster place. Coffee was good but not phenomenal.

    I highly recommend the iced red eye. I do not recommend the brownie. Maybe it was a bad batch, but it was not good at all.
