    "The Special" is a Gibraltar made with the non-milk espresso, a small amount of chocolate and steamed half-and-half; It's rich and flavorful—not on the menu, but can be made-to-order if you ask nicely

    If you feel like Thai Tea but want something hot, ask nicely for the steamed thai tea (not on the menu). Rich, creamy and delicious, and a unique take on a classic!

    For wifi, the password is electric sheep; If the internet is slow (or broken), use the Pork Store's wifi (password: ilovebacon)—If you're going to use the wifi, buy something and tip for good service.

    They use different roasters, both local ones and ones that are just good regardless of how far they're shipped. There's an outdoor space that's quiet. Use the wifi from the place next door.
