    Great atmosphere, friendly servers, free wifi, and amazing coffee options. Try the classic Mint Mojito, Mocha Tesora, or the mint teas. They also serve pastries, bagels, and toast!

    Iced mint mojito is my guilty pleasure. It's creamy and oh so refreshing. Make sure to taste it before you leave and see it's to your liking. Last time I came it was super watered down. :(

    Can't go wrong here. Some of the best coffee in the world is right in front of you. One thing to watch out for is the cream, which is really heavy. Ask for "low fat version" ;-)

    Mint mojito is definitely the most popular drinks. I love their camomile tea with honey too. I still found medium sweet a bit too much so mild should be good if you're not much of a sweet tooth!
