  • If you want your drink in a togo cup, just say that. Not "here, but in a togo cup". The baristas need to know what cup, not your location.
  • If you're there to do schoolwork, please be mindful of folks just there enjoying a cup of coffee. If you're there to enjoy a cup of coffee, please be mindful of those doing schoolwork.
  • Dudes, you can totally remove your coffee from the brew bar yourselves. Room is a personal choice. :) thanks for helping out your busy, beautiful, and caffeine anxiety plagued baristas.
  • They have Meth lab equipment here.
  • Amazing tea and coffee drip brewed by the cup!
  • If you're sticking around, help reduce waste by asking for your drink "for here," in a reusable mug or glass.
  • Especially great in the summer when students vacate the area. Tables galore!
  • Lids and straws are to the left of the drink window by the espresso machine. If you order something espresso based or cold; that is the pick up point.
  • i can appreciate being courteous of others wanting tables, etc, however during finals week I feel that the one-hour table limit is blasphemy! literally was hounded by the manager 4 times. rude&unfair
  • A great Americano. Was intrigued by the Cuban macchiato. Looking forward to stopping here again.
  • Dollar coffee!!!!
  • Lemon poppyseed muffin. Order it.
  • My friend Java actually lives here though he is not affiliated with the place.
  • Order the "All-Nighter," 5 shots of espresso. Gotta luv the jitters.
  • Iced chai tea is amazeballs! Have any tossed salad - its all great! I had shrimp w/ black bean & other veggies & a lil bit of naughty (but fabulous) blue cheese :o)
  • Try the German Chocolate Cafe Mocha. It's delicious.
  • 1$ panama drip coffees today and tomorrow!
  • 2$ mochas all day. Wednesday September 21st!
  • $1 conversation brews all day Tuesday September 13th!
  • Watch out for the cinnamon rolls! Extremely addictive!!!
