    First time here and everything was amazing! Although we had to take our food outside for lack of seating, I still can't complain. Coffee, food, and atmosphere were great. I will definitely be back.

    The snicker doodle cookies are amazing! The cowboy cookie is also very good! I had the iced green tea and on another visit, monkey mocha with almond milk. I wish the coffee was a little stronger.

    Reasons for this coffeehouse’s cult-status? An addictive caramel blend, indie-rock tunes, and shelves of crocheted simians. Go for the cinnamon-and-chili chocolate, but stay for Prosecco on tap.

    You've got to get up pretty early in the morning or be lucky to lock down the best spots, but the awesome food and fast wifi make it worth the effort.

    A great spot to grab a quick bite and do some work. Luckily there were no primates with rabies while I was there, which is what I assume they mean by frothy monkey.

    We recommend the Buck and the Ida (our favorite of the many unique sandwiches) for lunch and the Trout or the Steak & Eggs for dinner!

    It was good! I had the PMP and a peppermint mocha. The mpm sandwhich was very good. My friend had chili and was not impressed at all. The mocha was a little watery. Good... But Fidos is better.

    Solid espresso drinks and great food. Can't go wrong here, everything is awesome! However, the ICED FRUIT TEA is a total game changer!

    Just had the oatmeal for the first time and it's awesome. Comes with brown sugar, steamed milk, and your choice of 3 toppings. I went with strawberries, dried blueberries, and almonds.

    The Iced Turtle Latte is my go-to, no matter the time of year. Also, the California is an awesomely delicious breakfast!

    The "Red Eye" sounds like it's reserved for adrenaline junkies, but don't let that deter you. Drip Coffee+espresso is delicious.
