    The menu is healthy and so are the prices! Juices, wraps and gourmet sodas. Very busy and it's a shame it lacks ample seating. A perfect respite from the casual beggars and bustle outside.

    Good coffee but no AC in here. Prepare to sweat while you wait.

    I have yet to go in and NOT be charged the medium latte price for my small latte... Delicious goodies, but slow service and high prices.

    Employees are unaware of the Foursquare special. When manager was contacted, he/she did not reply back. If you will put special out, know about them.

    Did I really just pay $4.77 for a cafe au lait?

    Have anything, its all fracking great. When the zombies attack you will have plenty of food rations here. But they won't last since there are just to many windows for them to break into.

    WiFi, tons of outlets, subway stop, caffeine on steady drip, meat-filled wraps. You could live at this place if not for the short hours. Day job? Good luck making it in during a time they're open.

    Yes, it is small but that also adds to the coziness of this French/Italian café. When you enter, every bit of counter space is filled with goodies that would please a variety of palates. Read more
