    Margaritas for less than $2! Service is a little slow so don't come here for a quick meal, but nice to hang out and enjoy the atmosphere

    I like this place, it's pretty good, great quality coffee for not too much, like $2 and the food is also good quality at a fair price. Only complaint is it's not open very late.

    First time here. The raspotle (raspberry & chipotle) French toast was amazing. People are friendly & atmosphere very welcoming. www.AwakeMySole.com

    Incredibly large and delicious vegan cupcakes! Fantastic vegan nacho cheese and fair trade coffee. You won't find a more down to earth/friendly staff serving all of this deliciousness to you.

    So here it is: I so much want to like this place - but the combination of leaving you smelling like a fried rat and the death metal music makes me say: Capanna. Better coffee. Better atmosphere.

    I will never go here again for a couple reasons. 1) It's dirty. 2) I left smelling like fryer grease. So bad! I had to go home, shower & change clothes.

    The breakfast burrito is the best I've had. Just keep in mind the "eggs" are tofu!

    Far enough from the main campus but not too far to walk (by Greyhound station). Large tables, nice studying atmosphere. Grab some soup to fuel your studying, comes with bread that tastes SO good!

    I'm not a vegan, but this place has great food. Try the Mediterraneo sandwich, or French Toast for breakfast.

    Cappuccinos come in 2 sizes, based on how much milk you want added. Order small for traditional ratio w/ two shots of espresso. Yum.
