    Sandwich I had (chicken & white bean hummus) was great. Average service, I suppose it was because there was only three waitress. Lot of nerds playing board games. Nice place.

    Great place to get a beer and play a game! Good games to try: Dominion, Puerto Rico, Bang, Citadels, or Ticket to Ride. They always have great suggestions next door!

    Cafe Mox is a chill place to play board games with friends and have a cup of coffee. Best breakfast sandwiches to date and amazing humus.

    nachos are just platter of chips with small pile of toppings on midde - not a compliment. meat and peppers are above average spicy for those who are sensitive.

    Staff seems to be used to cheap geeks who buy one beer and play games for hours. Don't be that guy - support a good business by spending some damn monies there.
