    Don't bother asking them to check the balance on your gift card even after you make a purchase. Nobody here knows how to do it!

    This used to be my favorite coffee shop in the area and their iced vanilla latte is the best thing ever.. except I got it a couple days ago and realized they used powder instead of syrup :-/

    Their coffee is very good, their tea is also good, but it was too hot. There is a shortage of chairs, yet a table that has no chairs, deeming the table useless. Its also very hot, temperature wise.

    A little trendier than starbucks, this location had lively music, bright lights and the graffiti on the wall stood out. The hot chocolate that i had this evening was on point.

    Terrible service. An iced tea is not the same as a peach iced tea. Also if the drink isn't sweetened, they should let you know that. Never again.

    Asked for a caramel latte, got plenty of caramel, but no taste of coffee at all - great place to get a direct infusion of sweetness but they are pricey! Walk down broadway another block for Starbucks!

    The service is fast and efficient. The ladies are always very chipper in the AM and handle all customers with a smile. The large iced vanilla latte is a necessity to get through the work week.

    Limited seating but the drinks are good! Wild berry tea latte was not bad- fruity but not too sweet. Their vanilla latte & ice blended were hands down the best I've ever had (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    This West Coast import uses a special ice-grinding method on their customizable Iced Blended drinks that puts Frappucinos to shame.

    Maybe I just don't get it, but over $5 for a so-so ice blended drink isn't my thing. I may give their straight up iced coffee a shot, but otherwise I'm underwhelmed.

    It was the ICE that made them so special and it makes me sad to see "normal" ice, rather than the Coffers Bean ice I've been accustomed to.

    Despite being an on-menu item in Los Angeles, ask for the "Ultimate Mocha Ice Blended" if you are dying for a cold blended treat with extra caffeine.

    They ran out of small cups and offered me the medium instead. Prob is they charged for medium not small. Bad customer service in my book. Not my fault they ran out of inventory.

    Sugar free chocolate powder in iced coffee. All the deliciousness of a mocha, less guilt. And customer service is great. Lines can be long but they are sending kids out with free ice cream. Good move.
