Arrived here and looked up on the board to see "The Aussie"—one size $2.95 (2 shots espresso w/ 6oz steamed milk). As an Australian visitor to the US I ordered one and told the barista I'd be judging ...it. Happy to say that it was the best coffee I've had in the US so far! See More

Always love the coffee here. Miss some of the cake that used to be served, but now the emphasis is on lunch instead of pastries
