Full disclosure: I like Starbucks. This is WAY better! A very cool local coffee house. We got hot and iced coffee. Both were delicious. We took it to go, but many people were hanging out there.

Great coffee and pastries, free wifi. Brown students hang out with computer and relaxed atmosphere. Good music, you can buy coffee by the pound too
