    Friendly and inviting. Great beverages but terrible food. Every time I've tried food there it never fails to disappoint. I suggest grabbing a bite down the street at the Happy Gnome.

    So many beautiful people walk through these doors. Find a spot and spark a conversation. You get a new friend or date for this Wednesday.

    Best coffee shop in St Paul. With the $5 credit card minimum, if i know I'll be spending time I just start a tab and can get a few cups of tea or coffee. Also, Evening in Missoula tea is the best!

    It's super busy every time I visit and can be hard to find seating. Also, $5 minimum is requested for credit card purchases--difficult of you just want coffee and don't have cash. Great place though!
