Warm, welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff, good cappuccinos (try the Mexican Cappuccino) its a nice blend of coco + spices. The place is tastefully decorated. I especially enjoyed the French toast (with challah bread) in my opinion, this is the best way to do French toast and they got it right!

If you like strong coffee, this is the place for you. It is always brewed fresh, and has gotten me through many long days after little sleep. It is in walking distance of Duke's East Campus, and they always have local art on display. Would recommend the frozen mocha.
