As a retired school psychologist, I cannot recommend TERI & this coffee shop highly enough. This is the best model I've ever seen throughout the country. Please support this amazing place. Miracles happen here! Food: 5

Service: 5 Atmosphere: 5

Super cute coffee shop! The location is really secluded and beautiful! I ordered my usual iced Americano with oat milk, and it was delicious. I also got a ham and cheese bagel, which was also really good. Will definitely return to try other food items. Service was great!!!
