    Great place to have diner and chill. Loved the vegan chili, kale salad and the vegan key lime pie!! Ordered the tacos, dish was missing salsa, provided upon request and no avocado, lime or cilantro.

    The Greek yogurt cheesecake is really good. I really hope there was something healthy in there because I ate the whole thing. Plus it's enormous.

    Excellent customer service. They have some of the best desserts in Durham. Sandwiches are top notch!

    Food is good. The line and ordering is difficult. Don't take a tray unless you have several plates. Also make sure you are clear with the staff. I failed to say half a wrap and got a whole one.

    Cappuccino is outstanding--even with soy milk. So glad they have a Lavazza machine.

    Went for breakfast and food tasted fine, polite staff. But... Waited 10 min before we found out espresso machine was down and then order was incorrect. Maybe we go back for dinner, but probably not.

    Delivery of food is unreasonably slow for lunch hour and 40% full. Atmosphere very pleasant.

    No! This place is mediocre at best. Bland, standard cafeteria food. Do you like eating in a college cafeteria? Do yourself a favor and eat anywhere else nearby...Foster's, Guglhupf, QShack, etc.

    Another reason why I love this place: soy milk & organic stevia for my coffee :)

    This place is okay, but not great. Te ordering model is confusing. The food is decent, but there are better options nearby for the same price or less. Walk 50ft to Foster's or Guglhupf instead.
