Very comfy in here, love the college vibe, the food is just outstanding! You do have to walk up stairs, though so it's a bit inaccessible to some people.
I have lived in Columbia for almost 2 years and this is definitely one of the more popular coffee shops around town. It has a really cool atmosphere, it is in an old town house and the coffee shop is located in the upstairs section.
