- Caffeine Headaches: It gets crowded
Davenport Coffee Lounge is a nonprofit, student-run organization that believes in friendly service and delicious products. It’s nestled in the SIS building in the former chapel and strives to bring students, faculty, and staff together. It’s a favorite among students who need a fix of caffeine before classes. There are plenty of seats and tables to accommodate workers and those just catching up with friends.
