We tend to choose a local establishment over St*rbucks when making a coffee stop. This one was well-located on Shattuck, convenient and offered quality tea as well as a decent decaf Americano. The free wi-fi was a bonus. For some reason, the staff (management?) was...More

The coffe is strong and tasty and the service friendly. I love their Mochas. This place is right near my car service shop so I always drop in for a Latte or a Mocha after I drop off the car at cocky-crow.
