Great place to grab a cup of tea or coffee. Quiet environment - great for studying or getting some work done. I just wish they had a few more teas to choose from.

My husband and I love this place (it only takes us about two weekends to fill up a punch card)! Up until now, the Normaltown neighborhood of Athens didn't have a cafe that was exclusively a coffee shop. But now we do! Atmosphere-wise, I feel...More
