    Not confirmed but it seems like even tho there is a "bar" at the barista counter.... You don't order there.. Because we just got ignored for the first 5 mins.

    Espresso is blah. Space is somehow worse than a Starbucks. Why am I here?

    Their espresso is freshly roasted locally and always great. They also have excellent pastries from a nearby bakery. Highly recommended the chocolate croissant or blueberry muffin.

    Wow! I felt like I was in the way at a little after 5 pm, all employees cleaning up and shutting down around me... Even though they don't even close until 6! Not the greatest first impression.

    They do not provide sugar for coffee. They make their own simple syrup mixture. So bring your own or use their syrup mix.

    Minimalistic coffee place that makes an amazing cup of coffee. If you want something loaded with a ton of sugar masking the taste of coffee, this is not your place.
