    Order using the App, the layout of this store is a little busy. Some of the breakfast sandwiches are a good bet

    The folks who have worked here a while make a good latte but when a new employee starts, I always get a watered down latte, no foam. Annoying!

    Get here early on Sunday mornings if you want a comfy chair. Lots of pre-farmers market coffee drinkers!

    If the weather is nice, take your work out to the patio - there's a power outlet outside by the door.

    The McDonalds of coffee - at least you know you'll get a good cup no matter where you go. Not enough parking.

    It's a Starbucks. Pretty much like every other Starbucks.

    Pumpkin spice latte was not worth a try, unlike the toffee mocha which was really good.

    This location has horrific parking. If you don't find a spot, look behind the CVS pharmacy.

    Ask for no water in your chai. Because who wants a watered down chai?
