    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!

    Great place! You should try their Iced Coffee& Iced Latte. They have ground coffee selections as well.

    Espresso with ice cream for under 3 dollars. Can't be beat!

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

    Neil Epstein · May 22, 2013
  • PSU-Lion D.

    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.

    Sloooow service, but cozy.

    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.

    Randy Garbin · June 13, 2012

    Don't get the iced tea, tastes like coffee.

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

    If all I want is a slice do I need a waitress or can I go to the counter? I don't understand.

    Just the best coffee in Old City! All our guests love it.
