  • Coffee is good and service is always excellent! For a quick coffee on the run.
  • Great staff and yummy chai tea latte. Customer service is awesome!
  • Awesome upgrade with the new construction. Have a mini-crush on the morning cashier girl, who is genuinely the nicest person you'll ever meet. Great service all around and very happy about this new classy addition to 30th Street.
  • My cafe au lait was super watery and tasteless.
  • Nice to have a real coffee place at 30th St Station now!
