What makes this above average is, IMHO, the thousands of used books available to look at and potentially purchase, along with the typical coffee and tea drinks. The coffee and tea drinks are ok. But there are a vast array of books available for browsing or buying.

Stopped prior to a campus tour for a cup of coffee and muffin. Excellent on both. Service was very good despite only one guy working at 8AM.

That's about it. What else do you need? I worked at the UMN eastbank campus and visited this place regularly. The staff is consistent, the wifi reliable, the coffee good and it's a quiet and comfortable place to work or meet.

Just stopped in for a quick takeout latte. Service was friendly and the place was filled with students on laptops. My latte was great! Very hot! Would definitely go back!

I used to sit here for hours writing short stories and plays and screenplays swilling coffee and scoping out the honeys during my college days of yore. I always return older and not so wiser and I still love the coffee.
