    The non-coffee lattes are a bit sugary. Get real coffee instead

    The food was great, service horrible. Our waiter disappeared for over 20mins, the desert came first, and each of us got our food at least 10mins apart. Our server was replaced by a better guy tho.

    The fish rice burger was good! Great with kimchi. Avoid the kimchi Fried rice, it was overloaded with onions and no kimchi in sight!

    Cool place... But the staff needs to be more knowledgable of wine etiquette. They also needs to learn how to serve craft beer

    Honestly the macarons are just ok, too sweet to be honest. I've had better macarons elsewhere. The shaved ice is also slightly too sweet (Blockheads is way better)

    Mochi waffle is good. If you check in be prepared to see it blasted on one of the large screens. Eh I could do without check in advertising. slow wait staff who kept "working on the bill" after paying

    The french almond macaron latte is to die for! And it also comes with a cocoa macaron!

    Order their green tea latte if you love green tea as much as I do. Best one I've had. For their dessert, you can't go wrong with their crepe. Very well made and deliciously different than other crepes

    Great place to hang out if you want a coffee place where you could chill, eat great food & sip some coffee. It's not too crowded, it's more of a relaxed homy ambiance. People are great too.

    The Guatemala coffee is nice and simple. Service is always great. Internet is sometimes shoddy. But this is an overall great place to study, eat, and drink coffee!

    Christine Ro · June 23, 2012
  • Christine R.

    They changed their menu and now all the food is 6.99. The food is pretty good for the price. Their wifi doesn't work at times, so be weary if you need to do work here.

    Their service is horrible. Make sure you get their attention when you come in or else they won't even take your order for a long long while.

    Excellent coffee with even more excellent baristas. Desserts are fabulous and reasonable, and all the servers are friendly. Try talking to them!

    Emily LaPan · February 14, 2012
  • Ash P.

    Wow. Not sure why they changed it, but the atmosphere has been ruined. The fun K-pop music, video screens, and colorful lights are gone, replaced with a jazzy, quiet restaurant vibe. Not coming back.

    Ash Paulsen · January 26, 2012
  • Ryan M.

    The food was not good and the service was downright awful. Can't speak for the bakery but if you're in the area go around the corner to Loft.

    Crepe cake and chrysanthemum tea!!!

    With the exception of some pastries, the menu doesn't taste that great. Ambience is good, but am yet to have something impressive.

    Iota looks like a reality show waiting to happen. The walls pop with color, the menu groans w/ salads & the display of sweets is big enough to give diabetes to every boy band in Seoul. - Jonathan Gold Read more

    Great place, but will suddenly close early with no regard to business hours. Be forewarned if you plan to go late.

    So, the atmosphere is awesome (pop videos on all screens), the blended mocha is perfect and they have a large variety of baked goods (including cute cakes!) Oh, and free wifi and open late...fabulous!

    What is in this "green tea latte"? Milk and green tea. Wow. They even charge you $3.50 for it. Wow.

    If you like Haus, same owners here.
