We were in desperate need for caffeine and my boyfriend was showing me around the neighborhood. He got the Nutty Irishman which was amazing and I got my favorite Chai Tea which was made to perfection. The guy behind the counter was really nice and fun to talk to. Oh, did I mention that there are Pinball machines?!?!?!

I visit cleveland often, and always seem to find that this place is an absolute comfort zone. I am a night owl and this place works amazingly for me. I love the people too! I was made welcome by everyone, they are all like a big family!
