Eclectic decor, friendly staff, free wi-fi, nice location, and great happy hour prices. I grabbed a glass of wine here on a rainy day and it was the perfect pick-me-up.

Such a cute cafe with cute decor, the hot chocolate is AMAZING, I wish i took more pictures of the different comfy couches and chairs - it seems like a place locals go to so that's when you know it's good!
