We had a great time! The servers were so friendly and were very helpful with picking out and learning how to play games. The food was great (I loved the chocolate mousse!). Felt very comfortable with table spacing and covid protocols. We will absolutely be back.

excellent staff, great game selection, good food and drink. Only complaint is that it was incredibly hot. We went outside several times to cool down and actually left early cause it was hard to concentrate. I'd rather put a sweater on than bake when playing a game.
Business Response:
Hi Barbara, sorry for your experience and thanks for your review. As we mentioned to you when you left and let us know, we did unfortunately have an unexpected surge of people at the same time so the temperature can spike with the added body temperature when that happens. Our HVAC does have an auto-adjust setting but it does require a 5º temperature window. As we're coming out of winter, the A/C was set to heat to 73ºF unfortunately, that means the A/C doesn't kick in until 78ºF. Checking with some other customers based on your comments after you left they were okay but we did adjust the thermosat as it was 76º in there. As we move to the warmer weather it's set to cool at 73/74ºF and the heat doesn't kick in until 69ºF. We can definitely make your stay more comfortable while you're here, just let us know next time before checking out. We would have happily adjusted the thermostat to make things more comfortable for you. Sometimes, we are just so busy and are hot anyways from moving so we don't think to check unless someone mentions something. Hope your next visit is more comfortable.

The cafe was very modern and clean. Lots of fun games to try! Service, however, was painfully slow. Only one server working for a packed house. Perhaps a different system where people go up on the their own for drinks would suit better, similar to a brewery. Trivia seemed fun, but the speaker system was a little wonky, so bass was up really high and his voice reverberated in a weird way, making it distracting. Will try again on a non trivia night!
