    One of my faves. Get a delicious iced coffee (and it's not just a cup of ice, mind you. They don't skimp) and go chill by the dog park in Tompkins = weekend hangover recovery

    A chill and quiet spot, perfect for studying and reading. Although the décor and menu are minimalistic, their coffee is brewed to absolute perfection. The baked goods went perfectly with our espresso.

    Not too thrilled with this spot. Got a lot of sass from the barista who then took my to go drink and started drinking it himself. Espresso was chalky. Great place if you're into pretentious baristas
