    Don't go Weekend morning & afternoon (superbusy). Otherwise very comfortable place to study. Average food and drinks but a bit expensive. Open till midnight.

    Kind of pricy for a breakfast spot but very delicious. The bookstore/cafe vibe is soothing. The breakfast sandwich with avocado is a must

    Portabella Quesadilla was very filling, flavor was good, but not great. 4/5 The salsa was good though, lather that baby up.

    The place is crowded but you never have to wait long for someone to leave or for your order. Staff never seems out of sorts or crazy. Awesome place to spend an hour people watching in Newbury St

    The perfect place for a bookworm and brunch addict. Their fresh juices are all must-haves! My favorite is Gail's Kale.

    A little disappointed with the rating. Too much salt and pepper on my tofu scramble which I was probably the wrong thing to order but wanted something lighter. The service was very distracted.

    Haven't tried their food yet. If you come here to taste their coffee, please don't. It's a pity because the atmosphere and the layout is nice.
