This is a fun little cafe with nice food options and great coffee and tea drinks. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 is because it can get very busy which makes it difficult to find seating if you are meeting friends. It’s...More

By far the BEST waffles I have ever tasted in my life! The staff was also great with helping us visiting from Chicago to make great drink choices! Definitely will come back and visit Indie Coffee again! This coffee shop absolutely blew me away!!! (:

Eclectic and cool coffee shop. Loved that they also served single origin coffees, which is what you want to enjoy coffee in it's purest form.

This is a popular coffee and sandwich shop on campus. It is on Regent just east of Orchard. Don't believe the Trip Advisor map! Brewed or fancy coffees, breakfast sandwiches.

Very cute and intimate space that smells delicious. The smell of coffee and waffles almost lulls you to sleep, it is that comforting. It must have excellent acoustics because it is quiet in there even with people talking. Or perhaps all the patrons were being...More
