it's a great meeting place for "coffee." populated mostly with undergrad yalies in the evening who meet for said and who utilize the space for studying. during the day filled with a wider variety of yalies, including the grads (who might normally be at ol' koffee no. 1), and plenty of local businesspersons who come for the decently priced variety of foodstuff. coffee is good but not great, but there's amazing tea and plenty of alternatives to both. good owners, hip staff and fast service. just wish they played better music.
