    The coffee is just okay, the vibe is cool and nice for getting together with friends to sit and chat. Could use better baked goods. Changed owners years ago and it shows!

    I've been coming here since I was really little and ever since it's been my favorite - Their hot chocolate is of course a staple, and the kitty in the shop is the cutest thing ever!

    Nice employees, great food and drinks and a quiet, local atmosphere. Perfect place to come to hang out or to study. Check out the back corner for local events.

    Very cool place. I wish I could see better in there though-- it is way too dimly lit. Would have stayed longer to read and to also peruse all of the books on the walls that I could hardly see.

    Order the large hot chocolate with extra whipped cream. SO good! Get a cookie or pound cake to go with it too.
