    Every day there's at least four types of beans to try, plus many more to take home. Great food options, super friendly staff and the best community atmosphere I've ever encountered. Zero pretension!

    If you like chai, get the bi-chai. It' a mix of spicy masala chai with the sweeter chai mix you find most places. Best of both worlds!!

    Bring your dog! It's as much of a dog cafe as it is a people cafe.
