Coffee Shop

“Amazing small-batch coffee just a 10 minute walk away. One of our favorite ways to wake up on a lazy day. There's even a small selection of kids toys and books. But don't expect a Starbucks-like menu -- they only do pour overs and lattes. Try the deconstructed espresso. You won't regret it.”

Mexican Restaurant

“Delicious Mexican food and some of the best taco salad I've ever had. There's something for everyone here ranging from meat dishes to vegan dishes and everything in between. You wouldn't believe how great the food is when looking at how cheap the prices are. It gets crowded on Friday nights and weekends so going earlier is a good idea on those days. Open until midnight so good for a late night meal!”
