The Low Down


Know Before You Go: Take a quick peek into your to-go bag, especially during peak hours when items can get lost from your order.

What to Drink: Fresh, hot soy milk is prepared daily (sugar optional); otherwise expect only bottled sodas and water.

Where to Sit: Don't expect to nab any of the extremely limited barstool seating in the back (which comfortably seats only six to eight people). To-go is a must here.
