I normally go to the Uptown location, and just had to try their new place. It is located in a strip shopping center close to Azuma Sushi. The place has a good vibe and is really clean.
As far as dining inside, there is an indoor community island with barstools at this location. They have a couple of small tables outside.
The staff was eager to greet the crowd and the service was quick but personable.
I tried the pumpkin cupcake with cream cheese icing and the deep roast coffee. The coffee was hand-dripped and excellent. The pumpkin cupcake tasted like a banana-nut breakfast muffin without the banana. I couldn't taste the pumpkin and nutmeg. I guess I was expecting to taste a rich pumpkin pie. The cream cheese icing was a B+.
The Crave Cupcake Latte was worth waiting for...they are not as quick as Starbucks. I had the Dulce de Leche and there are 5 other flavors like Mint Chocolate. They use a velvet espresso bean and grind them on the spot. It woke me up just right.
I also went back and tried the Gingerbread Breakfast Cupcake. It was sprinkled with powdered sugar and rich with holiday spices. It stuck to my front teeth...yes, it was very moist.
