The food here is hardly gourmet, but very microwave friendly. Portions would make even dieters cry, but it has been consistently second rate for years. I tend to gravitate towards the bottomless soda, offering obvious value for thirst. The sight of paying $7 for a small casserole dish of Kraft dinner with breadcrumbs on top is absolutely gutsy on their end, but customers continue to buy. Their sandwiches are good choices, using artisan bread and offer better value. Their pricing system goes all over, some are terrible value while others good.
My experiences with the service here actually has been reliably good, as good as the closed location over on Granville St.
The ambience measures quite well with coffee shops, but they have the advantage in variety. It is open 24hrs so there's usually a motley assortment of the seedy wandering joes to the ultra posh stuck-ups. Not a place of preference to dine in.
The food doesn't satisfy enough to make it worthwhile coming here even if you lived next door.
This place is very much overpriced. I ordered a "regular" size pasta salad. It came in a tiny little bowl, no more than a handful of pasta. It wasn't very good either. For $5 you'd expected much more than that. Their coffee and cinnamon buns were pretty good on the other hand.... but overall not worth it.
