The hot milk was added to my espresso with skill, making it beautiful in a real cup and saucer. Friendly and prompt service. Good value. Great location. Hang out to use wifi, or visit with friends.

A bit expensive for what you get. Nice staff. Nicely designed coffee shop, didn't think much of the prices but they do offer different milk such as almond and soy.
