Spider House

Mon-Thu, 7am-1am; Fri-Sat, 7am-2am

A coffeehouse with the emphasis on house, this cozy old North Campus bungalow serves coffee drinks, juice, and beer as well as a small, eclectic menu in a comfortably shabby atmosphere. The patio and nicely landscaped yard are pleasant places to do some coffee-enhanced studying, watch a play, or listen to poetry readings and live music.
