I agree with the others. This place is always worth my patronage. Yeah, it's a coffee shop just like a million other coffee shops, but there is a very inviting feel to this place.
First of all, you don't have to feel like a little part of your soul just died every time you go here, as opposed to Starbucks. Plus, Atlantique doesn't have the identity crisis going on at Cosi... Is it a coffeehouse? A pizza place? A sandwich shop? A bar? Nobody freaking knows. But Atlantique knows what it is and doesn't try and do too much. It's also a lot nicer than Dunkin' Donuts, so you will actually want to sit and drink your coffee out of a mug instead of a paper cup! Crazy... I know...
The moral of the story: support your local little guy when you want a cup o' Joe.
Not sure why everyone goes gaga over this place. This morning was a bland one egg & and the thinnest slice of cheddar cheese on a croissant. $4.50. Served by a surly and bitchy team that have no right working the a.m. shift (was there at 9am) - hung over much?
