Stax changed hands in the past few weeks. It used to be a regular, rewarding coffee experience with the barista, Nick. Now that he's gone, the coffee has gone downhill (way downhill) and the place is empty. Shame.

Very average :(
Missing this place as it was a convenient and much needed stop on the way to work now it is a regularly detour on the way to everywhere. Coffee just perfect and the personalized service makes you feel apart if the family.
