    The only real difference between "for here" and "to go" is the additional charge you incur with "for here". Small-regular hot drinks are the only drinks that get a "for here" cup. So, just say "to go"

    Mexico are organic beans with floral tones of hibiscus that make for great aromatics. Assorted nutty light-body flavors are also complimentary in the cup.

    The ice blended drinks here are way better than Starbucks (and I love Starbucks)! Try the "pure" versions for caffeine-free for the kiddos.

    Chris is the BEST! Try an Iced Americano w/ hazelnut and dark chocolate flavor. Oh and add a splash of soy milk or non dairy.

    Great selection of loose leaf sachet teas, wish they had straight oolong without the added flavors, though. I'd also vote for a darjeeling!

    Get the freshly made yogurt parfait (not in the case). It kicks the butt off Starbucks' premade parfait. Full of berries and yumminess!

    Inside the Raphs so it's ran by the grocery store staff. Stick to menu items only, don't bother with custom stuff.
