THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Xando Coffee & Bar Restaurant Review

: Coffee by day, bar by night? You bet. Xando has a split personality that seems to work pretty well. Sporting comfortable sofas and modern table seating, step up to the counter and order from a full line of coffee inspired beverages, and snack on grilled paninis, pastries, sandwiches or salads. After 4 p.m., Xando opens its full bar (which has been cleverly concealed behind a large mural) and switches from counter service to table service. Coffee-based alcoholic drinks, and the same food items are available until its late night closing. Kids are welcome during the day, but nights are reserved for a mature crowd.
