    Good Cafe Miel! With a really nice atmosphere. Would love to go back when they have live music.

    One of the employees told me today that they water-down the Cold Press... Personally... I don't want watered down Cold Press... :(

    I can never decide if I like or don't like this place. I have found the service to be kind of boring. Like you're a nuisance in their day. It's 2014. Get a normal cashier pay system.

    Try a purple cow with cherry nut ice-cream and vanilla Italian soda!

    WOW I'm so happy we have ginkgo. 5$ charge policy is not strict. diverse customer base, not too busy, coffee is 1.20 to 2.10 for 20oz. open late. there's a cover sometimes with their shows tho, sucks.

    Love the yummies. Coffee is awsome, I strongly recommend the sabertooth.

    You can't add a tip on a card here. I found out too late. Bring a cash.

    Be sure to have a slice of Muddy Paws Cheesecake! It's super good!

    The curried chicken salad sandwich is awesome. The raisins add a nice sweet flavor.

    Can be pretty busy & doesn't have a whole lot of outlets available for laptops. Coffee is good, cheap, & strong though.

    When you leave, your friends will tell you that you smell funny... and it's true. Other than that, a cute, conveniently placed independent coffee shop with pretty good coffee.

    This is a great place to use wi-fi and grab a good hot drink!

    They request a $5 minimum purchase for credit cards and no longer allow tabs at the register, but buy a gift card for yourself and use that if you're a frequent visitor.

    The service is slow. There veggie delight sandwich is great. If you can wait. Give youself 15 min if you decide to order.

    Service is a little slow, but the food is worth it! Try a cold Thai coffee and a veggie lasagna.

    It is all good at Ginkgo. Also tiny toy nuns and chickens for sale. Can you say nun-chuck?

    A medium Cafe Au Lait is really a huge glass of calm. Weather permitting, order it in-house, and find a chair outside.

    Louis Haut-Prokop · October 18, 2010
  • Archie C.

    Get the HOT Chocolate!

    Better have a cash tip cause the card reader doesn't let you add it on.
