Great shop with nice decor. Offers up coffee, tap brew and great food. Inside and outside seating available. Metered parking coins only on the street. La Marzocco machines maybe a little more knowledgeable baristas but over all a nice place to visit.

This place has great food and drinks! Iced coffee was smooth and flavorful. Sandwiches were unique. Prices were good for the location. Service was excellent. One worker even went out of her way to get us the name of their gluten-free wrap provider.
