    Tableside s’mores and espresso cocktails are two things that make this hoppin’ corner joint so special. A coffehouse by day, bar by night, Halcyon has a fine selection of cigars and cigarettes, too.

    If you're a fan of crepes, then you absolutely must try the Crepe Nutella a la Mode! The great thing about Halcyon is that they serve crepes and the rest of their sweet breakfast options until 2 a.m!

    Ideal for socializing. The coffee is excellent (I favor the skim cappucino) and the food is equally delicious. Live music and alcoholic coffee drinks makes it a great evening hang out. NO STUDYING.

    Always great ambiance, love it during the day it is chill enough to work and/or hang out grab coffee or wine. At night amazing drinks, sometimes music, good all around to start a night

    Calm and cozy atmosphere to relax and hangout with a close friend or two. It is a bar, but for those that don't drink, they also have cheap smoothies and caffeine drinks as well.

    The prissy busboy with the short black hair is always in a hoity-toity mood. He's consistently been a dick to customers every time I've been here. Don't tip him if he takes your order.

    Best place to go on a date! Cute, dark and cozy, you can roast s'mores at your own table or sip on a yummy French hot chocolate (and yes, there's liquor in it!)

    Good for when you want decent coffee-- not a fancy drink. Halcyon gets the job done while also offering a small menu of snacks and other drinks.

    It's really nice when they give you animal crackers to go with your cappuccino. But then sometimes they don't, which is morning-ruiningly disappointing.

    A dog-friendly patio is available, but you can only have the s'mores (their signature dessert) inside. So if you plan to enjoy the s'mores, leave fido at home. Learned this the hard way...

    You might be discouraged to order the S'mores by being told there is an hour wait. Order them anyways and they should be at your table in 10 or 15 minutes.
