The coffee is phenomenal. The donuts are just alright.

I finally got a chance to try Contraband Coffee and I have to say it lives up to the reviews. It's definitely a great coffee joint ... but with mediocre pastries. I don't know about this dynamo donuts business. They were ok. I think I prefer this traditional notion of donuts where they are fried and fluffy.

These donuts are full of ... I don't know. Then glazed with ... I don't know and sprinkled on top with ... well I was lost at "full of" so I didn't even get to the sprinkled part. Meh.

The coffee though. I also am a huge fan of their cups. There's just something about them that's so cozy and inviting. They make some great lattes (soy in particular) but also have really awesome smelling drip coffee which I will have to partake in next time.

Super hipster coffee spot with lots of natural light.

It's small, but there is enough seating for about 25 people so the space is pretty functional. I liked the display of pastries and unique offerings such as a spiced matcha and a turmeric latte "golden milk". I’d like to try the steeply 6$ golden milk next time.
I tried pirate green chai latte, spicy and creamy!
4 stars for free WiFi but I saw only one outlet?? Wtf. Get an extender maybe?

Oh, and most of the seating is elevated so it's sort of a standing desk if you so choose!

The latte could have been a little hotter but otherwise was great.

After going to brunch in the area, I was walking to Bob's donuts shop when I passed by this coffee shop. I was not planning on stopping by but after I bought my donut I returned to have a latte with it.

I ordered my latte and sat at the bar. The latte could have been a little hotter but otherwise was great.

The place was relatively quiet and there were quite a few people enjoying their coffee while on their laptops doing work. There were plenty of tables and seating available and free wifi.

The barista was friendly and she was very knowledgeable about the different coffees they had to offer.

There is a code to use the restrooms and they were also clean.
