Good coffee/tea drinks, plus yummy muffins and bagels. Seating inside and outside. Fair prices and friendly service. Very laid back. Might be a little slow when busy.

I love a good dark roast before hitting the road and this place delivered. Looks like they have a nice drink menu for those interested in more than coffee, Free wifi and a place to play music.
