Friendly service, good food and very casual environment. We enjoyed our visit here, if not for Tripadvisor we would never have found this place.

This is a special little coffee house on Rt. 66. They have great coffee and specialty house drinks, as well as some fantastic loose tea blends. There is a little space out front for outdoor seating and indoors is funky with local artwork and random couches. They have live music and open mic nights to check out. The staff is friendly and they have yummy late night foods for drunk people (did I mention they also serve beer and wine???!!!)

On the road, we have to have good coffee, and we appreciate every Starbucks that's close to the road. But even more, if we can, we love to support local coffee shops. This place is colorful and funky and friendly, and the coffee's great. Light dining, and fine beer and wine if you have a designated driver!

I wasn't down with the environment. I felt like we walked into a emo haunt. Depressed kids lounging around looking forlorn and what not. The smoking section was in an outside enclosure connected to the building but the glass which separated the two had a couple broken windows so the smoke obviously came in. Joy! We had the vegan chili which was meh. If you enjoy tons of faux meat and some beans in your chili than this chili is for you! For the cost, which was a little high, I think they give you a fair amount of food. On the other hand, the Soylent Green drink was pretty good ... no humans in this mix! Only minty goodness! We do appreciate them having a handful of vegans options. That is super cool!

This could not really be described as a restaurant, it is more a self service canteen. The surroundings are reminiscent of a semi disused house in a poor area of town. I am glad we ate there in the early evening as I am not sure what the area would be like in the late evening as it is very run down.
Having said that the food was fine and we both enjoyed it, but there was hardly anybody else eating there and the décor in the place is dire.
Somewhere to fill up the stomach on good vegetarian food but not the sort of restaurant experience I enjoy really.
