They have good coffee, their espresso based drinks are not as good as some other companies' , however the atmosphere and the regular coffee more than makes up for that. They have a children's corner with a TV and VCR and toys. They have a book section, where you can get a book, or trade a book on an honorary system basis. They have tables and overstuffed couches and coffee tables.
They have great black bean soup, but don't bother with the sandwiches (very light on the fillings). The lady who owns it is so sweet.
