    Coffee here is better than Starbucks but still mediocre and tastes slightly over-brewed. But come for the atmosphere. Great place to study, chat, or just people watch.

    The iced chai latte tastes like melted ice cream. Take that how ever you'd like.

    Stopped in after browsing the strand bookstore. Not impressed with the peanut butter choc chunk bar - save the $ for more coffee or another book...

    Machiattos are very weak. I recommend the Dirty Earl Grey

    The large caramel Mona Lisa is like a better version of a frapaccino and with 4 shots!

    The frozen mocha Mona Lisa is a chocolatey frappachino-like drink that you must get. Delish.

    They have at least 5 kinds of Rice Krispie treats - chocolate, fruit loops, cinnamon toast crunch - delicious!

    Lattes are extremely bad here. There are legit bubbles in the foam so they obviously don't know how to froth their milk. And it seems like they use drip coffee instead of espresso. Everyman FTW!

    My cappucino sucked. I don't they understand the difference between a "Latte" and a "Cappucino." My cup was nearly 80% milk and with a drop of espresso. Terrible, just terrible.

    Music is too loud!!! I came here to enjoy a book and just couldn't. Wish they lower the volume or play classical music instead. TOO LOUD!

    Pay with their new app Kuapay, whenever you spend 10 dollars you get 1 dollar... Pretty cool way to pay with your phone and get money out of it :)
