    the coffee is good and it has a nice atmosphere, however the loud music makes it overwhelming.

    Saturday is crazy here but their foamy creamy cappuccino is superb. If you like espresso more than watery American coffee, this is your place! Besides it's close to one of the main train stations!

    A bit pretentious but when your product (coffee) is that good, you can get away with it. Ask for recos on which brew to get.

    The drinks are always quality however the vibe at this shop is more "laptop" oriented and less "chatting with friends after dinner." The intelli fresh flowers are also something I look forward to.

    Could've done without the croissant and sticky bun (I prefer semifreddi's and tartine), but the Agua Preta brewed coffee was the right amount of dark/bold for me!
