My fav place for coffee (try the mocha or breve latte), and the crepes are amaaaazing! I like the #10 Fromage. The building was a theatre historically.

This place is legendary. Yes, the Q is on point. The line wraps around the door on game days. It's in a gas station which is cool kitch factor and a slab and fries will run you right around $20! When I tell you this place is good, I mean it.
