Café
“Food/Coffee: We can’t find much to complain about here. These guys take thier coffee roasting seriously. Great espresso. Solid selection of treats like donuts for kids. Good bagels and egg sandwiches. The beans they sell for take home (we recommend the Costa Rican Tarazzu) are great. They even sell a couple of beers on tap! Service: Great group of people here! Look: You can’t really beat the location. There’s a nice patio to sit and people watch, and its generally a clean an well kept coffee shop. Fun factor: As mentioned above, this is a great spot to people watch. If you’re looking for some entertainment while waiting in line to place your order, enjoy the extreme skiing/biking videos they play continuously on the TV over the counter. ”
