    The roast is way too dark. If you like super bitter (charcoal) coffee with no other detectable flavors, go for it. I’ll pass!

    Such a lovely, chill little hole in the wall that has awesome coffee as well as glorious scones and the best oatmeal I've ever had in my life. Definitely worth it!

    When asked - 'how are the bagels' was starred at blankly. More roll than bagel, has the chew but missing the crunch.

    Employees too busy talking to wait on customers. Very few pastries. With all these beans, only 2 flavors brewed? No thank you. Cafe Olé down the street has my business.

    Not impressed with the service or coffee. I tossed my iced mochaccino half way through.

    This is not a place to hang out and use the wifi. You get a temp account that allows only one device for one hour. Iced coffee is excellent, though.

    Seems legit and not too hipster. In fact there's only 2 laptops here. Both PCs. #mindblown
