I love this place! – The staff is superfriendly and the La Colombe coffee is great. Better yet, they make the most amazing panini sandwhiches and salads. It's just yummy. I also go there for brunch or eggs during the day. It's a good hub for locals and a great atmoshpere to hang out in.
International Crowd -- Great Coffee and Great Food too – Check it out and hang out ~ Owner is cool Staff is awesome too. Love the salads, sandwiches and French toast too. Bring your lap top too. From developers to doctors to artists to tourtist. Great BNB nearby too.
Great lunch spot too! – I stopped by here for a quick sandwich on my lunch break and was really impressed. I had the european grilled cheese....all of their sandwiches looked really unique and the portions were big. I also tried the home-made tropical green tea and that was really refreshing! I'll definitely be stopping back here for lunch in the future.
I love it here! – I didn't like the smoking either. However, the cafe is now SMOKE-FREE! They have great La Columbe coffee, mediterranean food, and good pastries. Sometimes, the owner makes her own pastries which are awesome. I love when they have Baklava and other goodies. In the morning, they serve up yummy egg omelettes, egg sandwhiches, or waffles.
The atmosphere is relaxing. The staff is super-friendly. ...and the music is cool.
No Smoking & Weekend Hours – The smoking is awful, and I have started going to Starbucks again to escape the smoke at Cafe Ole. Although Cafe Ole has great inexpensive coffee, nice atmosphere, free wireless internet, and a point card (that lets you get a free coffee after the 5th one!), it simply isn't worth it because of the smoking! Back to Starbucks! Also, it would be nice if Cafe Ole stayed open on the weekends. Closed on Sundays (and not sure, but maybe Saturdays also)...
