Undergrads, graduate students, and professionals alike use this space to study, meet, work, and relax. Whether you are stopping in briefly or settling in to study for hours, we're glad you're here. Find out about our updated mission and how we plan on accomplishing it by checking out our "Who We Are" section.

Who We Are

We have a huge transient community and understand it's hard to show support and love from afar. We now offer eGift Cards to help with this. This is all done through Square Register and is emailed immediately upon purchase.

Crafting Great Experiences

We aim to create an excellent experience for each customer and we believe you deserve our best. While each item we serve has been prepared with care and patience, the ingredients play a major role in the final product.

We source our ingredients from local businesses providing high quality coffee, tea, and milk.

Art on Display: Gary Horton

Gary Horton is an artist and designer from Ann Arbor, MI. He moved to Pittsburgh, PA in 1996 to study fine art and design at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. This is where he developed his unique style and range.

While being classically trained in oil painting, Gary would spend late nights in train yards and roof tops learning the forbidden art of graffiti. Today you can see the influence of these two styles in the community. His murals and over sized paintings can be viewed all over the state of Michigan and more.

He specializes in bright, colorful and imaginative designs that help bring joy and wonder to an area that may otherwise be seen as ordinary.
