    Best chai I've ever had - good breakfast sandwiches too

    The breakfast sandwiches are pretty good.

    Wrong prices on menu board (they said the owner doesn't want to spend the money to the correct prices on menu) & over charging customers for add-ons that are part of what you order! Won't go back now.

    Oatmeal is good. Bad service. Limited seating.

    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.

    Short walk from state Capitol. Nice antidote to the politics. Bookstore downstairs

  • Sara P.

    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!

    If the coffee shop seating is full, there's seating in the book store downstairs. Wi Fi works down there too!

    Best place for a coffee rendezvous.

    Janani Logendran · December 9, 2011
  • Javen S.

    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!

    Javen Swanson · October 26, 2011
  • Naomi H.

    They have great chai!

    Naomi Heuermann · October 23, 2011

    I like this place & have for years but it's time for a face-lift: the interior is drab & uninspired.
