The guy with the tattoos and piercings makes an awesome latte, and should teach the other employees how to do the same. —AdamDurand

2008-08-06 12:51:53   I also enjoy this shop. It looks like they've put together a nice (albeit modest) lunch menu with sandwiches and specials for certain days of the week. Unfortunately, I'm rarely around during lunch on weekdays, so I've yet to give their lunch menu a try. —BrettDaly

2008-09-29 11:03:45   I am a big fan of Cafe Vas. I live in the neighborhood as well as attend church in the neighborhood. They are very gracious to me as I bring a crew of 7-10 teens up there on Wednesday night to get some drinks and have Bible study. They are big fans also.

I have tried their ice tea, coffee and sandwhiches; my son has tried their hot chocolate, my daughter has tried their frapes...all of which were great.

I hope they continue to do well and become a mainstay in the neighborhood. —BenjaminDePoint

2008-12-19 10:39:45   Still closed on December 19th. No note on the door, and nothing on their web site saying they're closed. —AdamDurand

2009-09-10 09:52:27   Beautiful interior and a great cup of coffee. Appears slow during the week. In another location this place would probably be packed daily. I recommend stopping by if you live in the neighborhood and haven't given it a try yet. —ErikReinert
