    Fantastic coffee concoctions, Dolor de Oro if you feel brave, Gingersnap Trainwreck for attitude. There's a plethora of choices if you're hungry, from Do-Rite donuts to gourmet-ish deli sandwiches.

    Upstairs is super quiet and it's a good place to get some work done with your coffee. Downstairs is pretty loud, but they play good tunes.
