Great Latte and Comfortable Atmosphere – I live near this intersection and was looking to find a quiet place to study. Bus Stop is very unassuming with few windows facing the busy street corner. I never really thought to go in until I was hunting for a free wireless cafe. I loved my latte and hung out for a couple hours working. There seemed to be a fair amount of regulars which I always think is the mark of a good establishment. They also have a nice patio outside for when the weather finally turns warm! My only gripe is the password to use the free wireless (is that even necessary for a public spot?) was so long - about 25 random alpha-numeric characters - that I couldn't key it in right after three tries. I was picking up another unsecure signal so ended up using that to work. If it weren't for the wireless issue, I would have given 5 stars!
Best Mexican Mochas around! – I LOVE Bus Stop! They have at least 5 different kinds of mochas (my favorite is the Mexican Mocha= cinnamon + chocolate + vanilla). The baristas are super funny and friendly. They also have the wall around the counter covered in butcher paper, and it always has a theme and patrons can contribute to the wall. Recent themes have been: "In 10 words or less, your most recent bad decision", or "What's your New Year's resoution?" or "Draw us a Picture", etc. They also have a rewards card, and every 10th drink is free. Floor and bathroom tend to be in less than pristine condition, but overall it's a great place. Plus, they use Cafe Vita fair trade coffee. I work in that neighborhood and I have to get my mexican mocha fix everyday before I go to work!
