Coffee Shop

“Best. Coffee. Ever. If you like lattes - don't miss the draft latte. You can ask for little or no ice to have it extra creamy and you can add agave to your heart's desire. The baked goods are from Floriole - ask for a heated ham and cheese croissant and try your best not to ask for seconds. ”
