    Be sure to check the board to the left of the cash register for barista specials. They're often better then what's on the normal menu. If you don't feel like coffee, the coconut chai is great.

    The cold brew is an espresso roast from Verve called Sermon. It delivers a strong mouth with a moderately deep and course body. The sting is mostly gone from cold brewing, but still earthy/bitter.

    Come for the Churro Churro Latte, which is on the list of barista specials. Stay for the spacious outdoor patio, board games, and check out the working vintage coke vending machine.

    I go here bc its nostalgic and a nice place to sit and read. The coffees good if you like a lot of sugar and flavors and milk. They serve verve but its just your avg local coffee shop!

    Really awesome place. Nice people and good food and drink. Really enjoyed the iced Oregon chi tea! Only thing I wish is that they had a choice of sizes because I would have gotten a bigger one :)

    The house coffee featured is roasted by Verve. The Buena Vista roast has a smokey aroma and the full bodied flavor of this dark roast is balanced by a sweet yet mellow coconut grace tone.

    I go here as a stop on an afternoon walk out of the office, the drip coffee is great and the atmosphere is light and pleasant.

    The only coffee shop I've been to with a banana based latte. Try the "Banana's foster".

    Even if you don't like coffee this is still an amazing place. Smoothies, pastries and other great food abounds. A great place to go when I need to work or just hang out and enjoy the atmosphere.

    Morning Glory bread was awesome, and the soy latte was pretty good. There's also a bunch of cool old school stuff inside.

    Definitely a spot for older people (30-ish). Do not get iced drinks (pretty bad)—hot coffee and tea are this place's specialty. Great patio area!

    Service is always fast. Don't let a long line fool you! Also- the Ham & Swiss Buns are the perfect combination with your coffee. Get one early before they're gone!

    Cafe in a former gas station. Super comfortable, great for working. Their drip coffee, alas, is only so-so.

    Staff said they no longer do the 5th15th25th checkin for free pastry. Although they honored this promo reluctantly in the end they should probably just take it off than givn customer a hard time
