    Good coffee; however, they literally don't have a single outlet for customers to use so don't come here to do work or to charge up.

    Probably my favorite coffee shop in the city. The staff is awesome and lattes are always on point. Plus they have a good draft beer selection and baked goods from EVO.

    Decent coffee and a nice place to sit and talk. The baristas were super friendly and *gasp!* acted like they wanted to be there. How novel!

    Surprisingly great coffee! I like the whole vibe of the place. There is no WiFi though. Kind of weird for a coffee shop in the middle of a busy college area full of students. **scratching head**

    When neighboring Garden & Gun magazine hosts its Back Porch Sessions with musical guests like the Punch Brothers and Holly Williams, the Kudu courtyard is treated to a very cool free soundtrack.

    Cool spot. Sadly, they do not have outlets inside and they have wifi hours, which means their wifi is like happy hour. You can only get the hookup for a few hours during the day.

    No Wi-Fi from 10-5 Saturdays and Sundays. I usually love it here and try to swing by when I need to get work done, but this is really frustrating. I guess I get why, but they should clearly post it.
