Really great coffee shop

Since I've been working on the east side, I have found Progress to be a great nearby coffee house. I like good coffee and the folks that work here are so nice. Unfortunately, I have become addicted to their Iced Lightning coffee drink. This thing is FREAKING CRACK! And the other day I found out what was in it, and instead of walking away so I don't get coffee gut, I ordered one. That is how addictive they are.
I also have fallen in love with their 5th Street Turkey sandwich. Habanero jelly with cream cheese, leafy greens and tasty turkey on a ciabatta. Hello heaven!
I highly recommend this place because everything is so good and there is actual parking. Great people watching too!

Little ""Progress"" made

We approach this coffee shop with a lot of enthusiasm given the way the owners described it on their website. We walk in to find a long line waiting to place their order and the inside tables all taken up with patrons. To us this is a strong indicator of how popular and well liked is this establishment. By 9:30am several items on the breakfast board were marked ""sold out"" which bummed me out. When it was our turn I asked if I could substitute a bagel for the biscuit in the breakfast sandwhich. The gentleman at the register paused with some uncertainty and then inquired about my request to the solo woman behind him handling all of the food orders. With a sour look on her face, she replied, ""No"". He tried to problem solve by offering me another breakfast suggestion which would include adding the bagel. The solo cook interjected from behind very rudely, ""You have to charge her for the bagel"". He replied, ""Of course!"" in a gruff manner. Their exchange and the cooks inflexibliity caught me and my partner off guard. I tried to overcompensate the akwardness by being uber friendly to the cashier. In the end, my order somehow got lost in transit (cashier claimed I did not order it, even though he recited our order back to us ), my partner's oatmeal was pastey, and the coffee was sour tasting. Little progress made for that morning.

Tasty food & great coffee.

A cool location with indoor and outdoor tables, walls display work by local artists ... good for social stuff or just to work. Their coffee is great (the most important thing!), but they have a tasty little menu, too, with vegetarian and organic options. My favorites are the brie and apple sandwich, and the mixed greens salad with walnuts and goat cheese. Really delicious. They also make good muffins, bagels etc. if you just want to snack. The only thing to avoid, though, is the chai ... it's kind of watery and bland.
