  • They now accept credit cards! Woohoo!
  • summer rolls and latte - perfectly tucked away in the expansive parking lot
  • Just had a Vietnamese soft roll at 4:20 pm!
  • Pastry is great.
  • Seating is limited but the Vietnamese soft rolls are worth the wait, with mint and tofu inside and peanut sauce on the side. The chai latte is good too. Cards accepted.
  • Try the aztec hot chocolate. In summer, they even do it iced.
  • Great coffee. Great service.
  • Try me (heh heh)...
  • The espresso is really good!
  • Unicorn adorned wonders may result in gleeful responses.
  • The spring rolls are excellent
  • They call their larges "Sumo" as a joke. It kind of got out of hand. You can call it whatever you want.
  • Best chai latte around. They accept credit cards now, but can get surly if you don't meet the $5 "minimum."
  • Now accepting plastic.
  • Vietnamese spring rolls are pretty great, as are the pre-made sandwiches (from The Biscuit). For drinks, try an iced chocolate!
  • CASH only, but if you join the "Coffee Ring", you can deposit cash to use later - great if you'll visit often, but rarely have cash. and no loyalty card to carry - it's in your name.
  • Any size coffee for $1 with food purchase on Mondays. (Remind the barista, though, because the deal is new and they dont always remember.)
  • Get a mocha with raspberry syrup - or caramel syrup - and hide in a corner with a book. Very cozy.
  • Be sure to sign up for Zing's coffee ring.
  • Spectacular Vietnamese soft rolls, great coffee, and delightful baristas. The soft rolls sell out by 1:00, so dont wait until after lunch.
