But there are tables outside, and there’s free wi-fi, and good, home-brewed coffee (and even brewed flavored coffees, not simply some vanilla or hazelnut syrup added in). They also offer fair trade organic coffee, and your favorite teas, as well. Oh, and doughnuts. They sell doughnuts. What goes better with calculus than a maple with nuts?

There’s an ample music and DVD collection, if you need something to inspire you, and when your brain is dizzy with facts and figures, just step over to the fish tank and watch the angel fish float around to put your mind back at ease.
