This place does have some of the best coffee around, and I love that they roast their own in the back. Maybe its the noise-level or the super high ceilings, but I never found this place that condusive to just sitting and reading or contemplating the hippies around me. Good for coffee to go, bagels are great, pastries are unremarkable.
Pros: Coffee, Prices, Bagels
Cons: Ambience, Funk
