    Go for breakfast (don't slouch on the homefries) and stay for lunch - the Seitan Cheesesteak Wrap is vegan deliciousness!

    If I opened my own coffee shop, it would probably be a lot like Milkboy. Live music, art for sale on the walls, good food & drink, free wifi, and the staff are friendly. Who does all that anymore?

    If you go for coffee and forgot to bring cash, get the chocolate croissant to help you get over the $5 credit card minimum. You won't be sorry.

    After only three consecutive visits, I was a regular. I walked in the door and the barista smiled at me and rattled off my order. That was a great feeling.
