I like how strong they brew their coffee and how quick and efficient they are! It's significancy better when ordering in vs to go. Would only be better if they used home made whipped cream. I've long graduated from store bought varieties. * CAPPUCCINO ($2.50) - 3.5 STARS The cappuccino is nice as well, nice and strong extra short almost like a macchiato. * SHAKERATO ($3.35) - 3 STARS: Prefer the version of this with sweet milk at Cherry Street. * HAM AND CHEESE CROISSANT - 4 STARS The pastry case included a few sweet and savory things which didn't look very appetizing. The ham and cheese is surprisingly delicious flaky and buttery if you have time to let them toast it on the panini it's definitely worth getting. They also have a turkey cheddar, almond, and raspberry croissant. 90 cents for their individual chocolates also seemed unnecessarily steep. <p>3.5 STARS * CAFE SENSO UNICO ($2.45) - 4.5 STARS Cafe Senso is unique in their specialty house offerings which include a mocha made with dark chocolate powder and espresso and whipped cream.

Where to start, I drink a lot of coffee and this place rarely lets me down. My favorite is iced americano, but they also have really good mochas. The chocolate is not sweet like most places, but dark, rich and complex. You can get different milk alternatives like almond and hemp which is a nice change from soy. The lunch time sandwiches are delicious and the cookies are both crunchy and chewy. Maybe not the peanut butter one, that can be dry, but maybe it's just not my taste. Either way, this place is solid. <p>How have I not reviewed this place yet? Where to start, I drink a lot of coffee and this place rarely lets me down.
