The food is pretty good. They ...

The food is pretty good. They have a large selection of things to choose from but the one thing that I really don't like about the place is that it follows UW's bureaucratic trends. The little rules posted throughout the restaurant make you feel as if you need a timer to eat there. Apparently they aren't aiming to be the place to hang out and work...

great location, but don't let it draw you in

This cafe is good for its location and its hours.
but you should really try Solstice or Cafe Allegro for good coffee and nice baristas and Ugly Mug for cheap good food.

Favorite cafe on the ave!

I used to spend all Sunday there doing physics and pchem homework, and it was a great place to be for a few hours at a time! Also, I don't know what the guy above me is talking about, they have free internet and it's pretty dang good too. The coffee is great, I think all drinks are double shots, and the ambience is very study-friendly. Ditto on the wish for more variety in food, I think they do have a food menu and when I was starving one day, I was told the chef wasn't there that afternoon. :(. It is a little dim, though!

a great place to study

no distractions, and with a roma mug you get inexpensive and abundant coffee supply to keep you awake through a few chapters in your textbook. cute girls are a good diversion when you need a break from all those t-accounts and demand curves. i just wish they had food other than muffins and scones (soups and sandwiches, maybe?) and wireless internet (like starbucks).
