Great coffee and creative seasonal drinks for affordable prices (often less than any chain for better quality). Not to mention the location is so convenient, especially for MCTC students who need a pick-me-up! My favorite seasonal drink for Fall is the Frosty Pumpkin Mocha.

Great coffee and the best latte by the barista who is there in the mornings when I go. Comfy places to sit with books to read if you want to hang out. Eclectic clientele.

Yes, there are hundreds of coffee shops in Minneapolis. But to my knowledge this one is unique. It has literally thousands of used books at prices from $3-10. I could have spent a thousand dollars here, just on books. Yes, there are a variety of...More
