Bandit Coffee Co.

Serving lattes, pour-overs, and other beverages made from single-origin roasts is a minimalist-chic cafe called Bandit Coffee Co. Their menu covers almost everything coffee you can think about from Espresso to lattes, Cappuccino, regular tea options and much more. 

Music goes on inside the cafe to keep guests entertained but I found that it is a bit loud and might not be ideal if you wanted to study or get some work done. Be sure to try their pastries if you ever get to visit.
