    Fantastic ambiance! Lights are lit up outside of the cafe at night, and it's beautiful

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
