What to get: Cappuccino, Strawberry lemonade, a tree-hugger, or a cookie (they are famous for their break-up cookie, but all of them are great). They also have a great selection of books to choose from or simply peruse while waiting for your drink.
I practically live in here. Yes, this is partly due to its proximity to my house, but it is mainly because of the good vibes and community there. I’ve been coming here since middle school along with many other students, which often contributes to a studious atmosphere. It’s also open until 10 pm, often just the start of a long night. The staff are welcoming familiar faces and so are many of the regulars. Everyone needs a good study spot where they can actually get stuff done, and this has long been mine.
