Very cute little spot. The fact that they have substantial food and coffee in the same spot is really the only standard they had to meet to get me to come back. They really exceed expectations when the food and coffee end up being super tasty. I have a little gripe about their $7 sandwiches, but I guess that’s a price I’m willing to pay to have uninterrupted study time.
The space is clean and homey - whimsical artwork lines the walls and tabletops. Their music is also the right tempo/genre for conversation or study - loud enough to drown out the passing cars, but quiet enough to keep a train of thought.
Overall, it’s definitely worth checking out and staying a while.
