The coffeehouse features rotating art exhibits and live performances with our weekly Open Mic. We offer limited wireless internet access to customers, and the perfect environment for reading, studying, and especially conversation and discussion.

The coffeehouse serves simple, delicious fare that’s perfect for breakfast, a healthy, tasty lunch or light supper, nearly all prepared fresh from scratch on site and from high quality ingredients. We have frequent menu changes to follow the seasons, supplementing our established core menu.

The coffeehouse opens at 8 a.m. seven days a week (one hour earlier than the bookstore) to help get your morning started right. Stop by Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.”
