During the day, this is your typical neighborhood coffee shop with potted plants, a mixture of artwork on the walls and furniture that appears to have been confiscated from garage sales.

If the artist is popular, you may want to arrive early to grab a mismatched table and chair. The menu features a variety of flavored teas, coffee, latte and espresso, soft drinks and juice.

Yet, as the years have gone by, doubts have started to creep in even amongst locals about the quality of service. However, the pub's efforts to provide the best possible service and re-achieve its past glory are well underway.
