This casual, spacious coffee house has both indoor and outdoor seating. It is neither corporately friendly nor independently hostile. The floors are cement, and the wrought-iron tables have mosaic tops. There are also booths and a fountain. I haven't properly experienced this place yet: I ordered an iced decaf (boring) and went on a Wednesday at 6pm (not a time likely to have many patrons). It was pretty empty. The music was a bit loud, and the bathroom was spacious. If I were to take a date to a coffee house, I would not pick this one as it's not cozy or romantic in any way. I believe they had some meal food in addition to coffee and dessert. If I visit again, I'll give you a more in-depth review.
