This on-campus coffee / snack place is absolutely awesome! Super friendly staff, delicious (not the boring old) sandwiches and great chocolate chip cookies. Fun atmosphere right behind the law school.

This coffee house couldn't come at a more welcome time--we were wondering how we would survive just on hotel coffee-maker brew, but here were pastries, and expertly dispensed, delicious coffees of all sorts. But try their Peanut Butter ball--without fail. A revelation!

The baked goods at Great Dane are criminally underrated. Always creative and super tasty takes on everything you'd expect to find at a coffee shop. Their scones are worth seeking out.
