    Slow, clumsy but super friendly service in this hip, bright Mt. Pleasant coffee shop. Oh, and the coffee? Phenomenal. Also try the rooibos chai latte. Pet-friendly!

    Hands down the best croissants in the CITY. Freshly baked a couple times a day, there is a good chance you'll get them WARM. Solid cup o' Americano too.

    Huge windows are great for natural light, gazing at the downtown skyline, and Main St people watching (both inside and out). Excellent, eclectic selection of reading material. Lots of hipsters around.

    Try the cappuccino. Here it's more like a flat white: the velvety texture of a cappuccino, but with the intensity of a strong espresso. Best of both worlds!

    Coffee shop for hipsters. Where MACbook, indie rock and 70s inspired fashion mesh. Try the ginger hot chocolate for something new.

    Gene cafe is for hipsters, our town cafe is for hippies. What a difference one block makes.
