- It's a great place to splurge on your diet if you want to with their gourmet cupcakes and pie/cake slices, but you can also save calories and be healthy with all their vegan and vegetarian/healthy options. I also love the homemade soups offered everyday. – Christina M., Yelp
- The baristas were very nice and patient they even drew a little foam heart on my white mocha!. The music was loud enough to hear and kind [sic] folksy the kind of music you want to hear while sipping on your peppermint white mocha on a cold December day. – Mariela G., Yelp
- The coffee is good; the drinks are skillfully made by the baristas and the food is surprisingly awesome! – Keith W., Yelp
