we love this place, the breakfast burrito and scrambles are excellent. Lunch is just as good - wish they stayed open for dinner.

We only had coffee which was good. My husband likes brewed coffee, he wanted a medium roast but they only had dark brewed. I had a mocha which was very good. The place was super busy but the employees were friendly and attentive.

I just looked at their website and I did not see a gift certificate online option. However, coffee can be ordered online -- maybe your friend would like that. The in-person experience there is fun, though -- I would give... More
