It's not Starbucks. I love Starbucks, but they are everywhere, including wherever you came from, more than likely. Try this local coffee shop for some tasty caffeinated beverages and you will also be pleasantly surprised by their unique and satisfying food menu. Lots of college kids and local hipsters stop by.
