The coffee and pastries were great, but the parking is a nightmare. Be prepared to walk a bit. Also, the stairs up the loft seating is basically a ladder. I opted to sit at the counter/bar rather than end up wearing my latte. That said,...More

This place has a Greek theme and it is so good. It's the perfect place to hangout and chat, work on your computer, or sit and read a book. It wasn't too loud and it has a ton of space and seating!

Agora's casual coffee atmosphere is great for studying, working or meeting up for a chat. It's heavy on personality and charming all around. I adore Agora!

I cannot say children under age 13 would find much entertainment in going but it is a coffee house with some personality. They have bakery treats the kids would enjoy. A lot of the patrons read while sipping their drinks... More
