I love this place. When a friend used to live off of College, we used to go there. As mentioned, it is an ideal spot to bring a book or whatever project one is working on, go upstairs, take off your shoes and sit on the map and have some great tea. I love learning about the different teas and have purchased. The treats are fine for a light snack but as has been said, you can bring in food. Great, relaxing atmosphere.
