What a coffee shop should be.
This place has all the qualities I look for in a good cafe. They serve good locally roasted coffee (ristretto roasters) that they take time and care in preparing, have comfortable outdoor seating (covered), lots of books and places to sit indoors, and a fire place to top it all off. They have a good food and desert menu for any pangs of hunger you might experience, as well as free wifi, and lots of outlets for the laptop. It is generally fairly slow, so I hesitate to add this comment since I can always find a place to sit and enjoy myself, but with all the pretentious baristas, poor service, and sterile interiors that have come to mark the most respected cafes in p-town, this place is too nice a change not to mention.
