    This isn't french toast. Sorry it sucks. Full of egg nothing else. :-(

    Oats have too many oats and not enough fruit. Coffee tastes like Starbucks burnt ness.

    Espressos & pastries. But you may want to consider downloading and using their App. Otherwise you may be waiting in line for a bit...

    Get your chai sweet AND spicy. Arguably the best chai in the vicinity. Also, there's wifi but it's pretty slow - don't count on it for important stuff.

    The Healthful Organic Oats are fantastic and perfect on a chilly day, although sitting in the rotunda on a sunny day will also have you sweating in no time!

    This place is tasty. Try the Portobello mushroom burger. Get quinoa salad & potatoes. Note: I haven't asked b/c I want to remain ignorant but I'm sure the potatoes aren't vegan. They're delish.

    The coffee was quite good. I was also surprised to see a variety of spreads/jams for patrons who got food items and enjoy such spreads/jams. The staff was helpful. It was my first time :-) AAA+

    Most sandwiches are pre-made so special requests (e.g. no bacon on chicken sandwich) are out.

    This really feels like a European cafe. The goat cheese and pear tart is just lovely as is the egg, cheese, and smoked salmon sandwich. And don't forget to get some spicy mustard for dipping.
