Right next to the fabulous hub city bookstore, the coffee bar provides a comfortable atmosphere and excellent coffee along with friendly eclectic baristas. They also run a no-waste operation, using compostable cups and other items.

Stopped in for a coffee here. Definitely a different feel than the larger competition. Relaxed, modest crowd, free wifi. Some patrons were conducting business, others in casual conversation, solo working or surfing. Cupcake from bakery was good. Had a regular half caf with no wait.

Excellent coffee and wonderful staff! You can sit inside or take your coffee and hangout and people watch outside. This is a great meeting spot for friends, or with coworkers.

I usually go here for a short break, since I work a block away. Nice bohemian feel, plenty of seating, coffee is affordable and tastes pretty good, and there's a bakery and bookstore located in the same building. I'm not a coffee connoisseur, but the...More
