    Awesome patio and really cool interior. The String Lights give the patio a very relaxed vibe. There's plenty of tables and seating.

    Books, coffee, tea, food, music, and a back porch. Might be the perfect place.

    Good espresso. Great work ambiance. Plus nice back patio where it's generally chill to smoke ... though Im sure you're not meant to ;)

    If you have a book or group of poets/writers, book the patio for a reading.

    Best Cafe in a Bookstore, August 2010 - Vegetarian chili is tomato-y, hearty, and unspicy, served with toasted baguette slices drizzled with olive oil. Read more

    Check out this bookstore in the summer & catch an intimate live reading/acoustic session. Relax surrounded by walls of books and local art, make sure to try a bowl of their decadent macaroni & cheese!

    Dust off your journal & experiment with some free form poetry while you sip hot tea & indulge in the decadent mac & cheese. Stop by in summer to catch an intimate live reading or acoustic session.

    There is a small but nice religion-philosophy-esoterica section.
