Favorite cafe on the ave!.
I used to spend all Sunday there doing physics and pchem homework, and it was a great place to be for a few hours at a time! Also, I don't know what the guy above me is talking about, they have free internet and it's pretty dang good too. The coffee is great, I think all drinks are double shots, and the ambience is very study-friendly. Ditto on the wish for more variety in food, I think they do have a food menu and when I was starving one day, I was told the chef wasn't there that afternoon. :(. It is a little dim, though!
a great place to study.
no distractions, and with a roma mug you get inexpensive and abundant coffee supply to keep you awake through a few chapters in your textbook. cute girls are a good diversion when you need a break from all those t-accounts and demand curves. i just wish they had food other than muffins and scones (soups and sandwiches, maybe?) and wireless internet (like starbucks).
