Cup of Joe has the privledge of being a local chain, which means I, off the bat, love them a billion times more than I'll ever love a chain. That said, it is quite smoky in there - if you're a non-smoker, stay in the main room or get it to go. Their specials are quite good. For a few years (don't know if they still do - the smoke gets to me and I can't go there anymore) they ran a "Wired Wednesday" promo where you basically got an extra shot or two of espresso for a quarter in your drinks. The iced king mocha and I got through a summer together. Definately worth the short walk from campus.
