What a cool, vibrant place to work while you eat and drink. Lots of nooks and crannies to tuck away into, and the food and service are spot on. I even tried the little area at the top of the stairs once - the chairs...More

Nina's is a personal favorite of mine. It's such a unique, quirky old building that is full of history. It also has amazing staff, great chai tea lattes (I don't drink coffee), and amazing food ranging from breakfast sandwiches to pumpkin bread to brownies. 10...More

We have stopped for coffee and snacks several times. Such a busy place but staff are always friendly and helpful. The menu includes lots of sandwiches, soups, desserts, scones, other good looking food.

Stopped by on a Saturday night. Ordered two hot chocolates, a coffee, and a couple of personal pizzas to share. After ordering, the cook graciously let us know she was out of some of the pizza ingredients but would improvise, and her creation was very...More

Nina's is fantastic, and I simply adore the building it's in. I love popping in there to get some work done, but the only downside is that it's always absurdly busy. The drinks and treats are great, and I know they have food, but I...More

We came for brunch on Monday and it was packed. It's not a very large space, maybe 50 or so seats spread between tables and couches. A guy was nice enough to give up his seat so our party of three could sit. We started...More
