My love for local cafes got me down to this place. There was plenty of parking available at the Clintonville location, which is a huge plus!Ambience is great. Saw good amount of people with laptops, Wi-Fi is available and free, had good speed too. It’s a nice place to arrange business meets for a quick chat and also good for quick grabs since drive through is available.I’d come back any day for the Mayan mocha freeze I tried today, it was delicious with an amazing aroma. My boyfriend got iced vanilla coffee, ice here is crushed and the drink stays colder for more time which is all we need during the hot summer days. :)Staff was friendly. Only downside, a bit expensive, At least for the speciality drinks.

Really good coffee! It's cool that it's local and focuses on single origan and small batches to empower small coffee farmers. More focused on the craft rather than the quantity. It is busy, and the baristas seemed a little flustered, but they did great in ensuring that everything was quick and right.

The best espresso around! Very helpful and polite staff. Nice sitting area and nice outside patio with umbrellas. My only complaint is the lack of nutrition information for the food they sell. I even asked a manager how I could figure it out and he did not know.

Visited twice now. My husband and daughter have enjoyed the coffees and I like the teas. Clean facilities. Customer service Jas been outstanding. I for got to order my macha latte with almond. They had already made when I realized my error. No big deal, they happily made me the one I could drink. On the first visit we had questions and the employee was friendly and patiently answered questions and made a terrific recommendation. We will return.
