    Texas toddy is the way to go. That or a pitcher while you get your study on. Nice place to post up and get some work done, I have no clue why people have been saying ride staff, theyre super friendly

    This is one of my favourite places. Great coffee and tea, although a bit more expensive than some places. Always good music playing softly, and good lighting & space. Perfect study spot!

    Was better before they added the bar, but still a comfortable place to study and get work done, just a block from campus. Drinks are too expensive, but food is good & it's a cool atmosphere.

    A great place to study or take a coffee break if you aren't looking to pull an all nighter, they close at midnight!

    Really having a hard time deciding the cookie I like best. Right now it's a toss up between the Mad Hatter and the the new one TX Twister. Nice job guys

    Hands down the best cookie I have ever eaten. They offer several kinds from a local baker Mojo Cookie Company. I now stop every day for one

    Avoid their drip coffee, get something made in the clover machine or an espresso drink.

    Cold brewed coffee? Check. If you haven't had cold brewed coffee try it.

    Need to wake up? Come here for some pretty strong coffee. Lots of seating, not much parking.

    They don't have Yerba mate here, but a decent selection of loose leaf jarred teas.

    Try a regular size, tripple shot, non-fat, half syrup almond latte. It's lovely.

    They are rude and everything is expensive, don't know why this place is still so popular.
