Located behind the Cheesemonger store, you will find local light meals, coffee and tea, and slowwww service. A Hipster place with an excess of ink and paucity of customer service, the food/drink quality is fine, but at these prices one expects more. Has nice, large...More

Good fare, but some of the hipsters behind the counter often can't be bothered to get food out in reasonable time...

Cute place and friendly staff, but I'm an Italian-roast kind of coffee drinker and they use beans with a different roasting process. All a matter of preference. Some people love that variety but I find it grassy.

The latte was nice. The lemons for the lemonade were cut right after the order. The place has an atmosphere, a bit on the cold side, but still nice.

Sat by the fire. Grilled cheese is to die for! Great selection of sandwiches and other featuring Rubiner's amazing cheeses. Reasonable pricing.

Everything about our lunch experience here was horrible. The employee who took our order was beyond indifferent. It took more than 35 minutes to make and serve one tuna melt sandwich. The tables were dirty and paint was peeling off the walls.
