    So they almost completely eliminated the lounge in order to build a barbershop but the back quarter is still a fully operational coffee haven!! Lots of reno. going down but still great coffee!!!

    Such a cute coffee shop! Feels more personal and more focused on the costumer's wants and needs. A great place to study at and catch up with a friend.

    They make the most delicious caramel latte! Don't worry about ordering it "skinny", just order a small and get all the great flavor without over doing it on the calories and sugar.

    They have started an eye altering renovation; in addition to furniture, they have added a new barista. New guy knows the menu but his drinks are a bit bland; needs time to mature into a Coffee Jedi.

    Just remember that only one side of the door opens (the handled side). I have noticed multiple patrons who get caught in a "stupid moment" when they go to walk out and get stonewalled.

    I normally steer clear of 'chocolate' muffins / cupcakes at coffee shops since they tend to taste like nothing. I took a chance here; it was moist and tasted like chocolate. The coffee's great, too!

    Can't go wrong with their hot spicy chai latte - even when made with skim milk it tastes like a little bit of heaven.

    Make sure to come by regularly just to see the art change. Last time I was here, they had strange cat paintings. Today they had a couple big Beatles pop art paintings.

    This place has a great atmosphere for studying or work. The eclectic decor reminds me of the artsy coffee shops back east.

    Ask Chad to make you a dry cappuccino, and then be sure to leave a tip for Mr. Limpet, the giant crystal fish near the register. Bonus points if you know the Mr. Limpet reference.
