I live in Columbia and work close to this coffee shop. Additionally, I have been going here for about 14 years, which should say something in and of itself.
This is a good coffee shop with a variety of specialty coffees and good breakfast and lunch items. There is free WiFi, music, and ample seating. The young people working on your coffee and meal are knowledgeable and quick, and also very friendly. Prices are in line with big chains like Starbucks, but for me the food quality and especially the coffee quality are much better. And Mad City will alter any of the menu items to your taste.
A special note of the coffee: If you know anything about Starbucks, you know that they absolutely burn the coffee beans. Should I be forced to get a coffee from Starbucks, I must add cream and sugar, or I can't drink it. With Mad City, though, the roasting is done properly. The result is a fine cup of coffee with good and full flavor. I almost never add anything to a cup of Mad City coffee.
In addition, there is a huge selection of beans ranging from $8 per pound up to $40 per pound for the more exclusive Blue Mountain and Kona.
Mad City is the best place for coffee in the area.
