Coffee Cartel is everything you could want in a local coffehouse/hangout. They serve a wide variety of coffee and expresso drinks (including those with alcohol mixers, for you Saturday evening chat with a friend). They also serve grilled peanut butter sandwiches, renowned nachos (great place to drop by after the bars close), and Edy's ice cream (yum!). There is ample seating (several rooms beyond the main ordering space and some outdoor seating) and they're always open. Great place to study (if you need background noise) or socialize.
