I occasionally stop in here on my way to work. Its a good second cup but as far as second cup goes, If, I could venture out of the way every morning towards Starbucks or the delicious Artigiano's in the Watermark Tower I'd prefer that. Very friendly staff and the seating is ample and comfortable.

Great place to get a great specialized coffee as I prefer over Starbucks. We also enjoy a nice quiet atmosphere along with a Danish too.

If you like to have a gourmet coffee at a reasonable price, this is a great place to go. They also have some nice treats to go with it ranging from pastries to sandwiches.

I often wonder why there aren't more Second Cups around. I find them less bitter than their main competition and simply the best mocha I have anywhere. The staff are always friendly and helpful and their baked goodies are also fantastic with excellent selection. The frozen hot chocolate is a great summertime beverage, but there's lots more to choose from... More

All Second Cup drinks are all made perfectly. I always order the White or Vanilla flavoured hot chocolate and they're always made perfect

My friend and I had the salted caramel on the hot chocolate. We shared a brownie. It was over nine dollars! And I suspect that it was about 600 calories, at least. Nice seating and friendly ladies serving. I am not one to buy a lot of hot chocolates or cookies at cafes, so I can't tell if the price... More
