As a busy student, finding a cafe that’s friendly for both unwinding and socializing can be a challenge, but A Day Cafe could be the place you’re looking for. A Day Cafe is a trendy coffee spot with an inviting environment and a colorful menu that caters to the taste buds of all guests.

This cafe is located off of Greenville Avenue and is a convenient eight-minute drive from campus. It is a prime spot to socialize with friends due to its relaxed atmosphere that can make the perfect study break or lunchtime hangout. Whether students are looking to catch up with friends over coffee and toast or grab a smoothie after a workout, A Day Cafe caters to all needs. Prices range from $4 for drinks to just under $13 for sweet toast plates, and the cafe is open Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 9:30 p.m.

Tucked away into the lower floor of a large building and tempting with colorful, aesthetically pleasing drinks, the cafe feels like a hidden gem. With a chill vibe and a minimalist yet appealing interior, and walls scattered with colorful images and decor, A Day Cafe is perfect for hangouts or social media posts. It has a decent number of tables, chairs and soft benches, making it a comfortable place to sit and socialize. The natural lighting adds to the relaxed ambience, creating a calm, low-key environment that makes you want to linger and enjoy your time.

But A Day Cafe is not just about physical appearance — it also boasts a mouth-watering menu that is sure to please any palate. From crepes to milk tea and smoothies to coffee, A Day Cafe has a wide variety of options for hungry and thirsty students. One popular item is the homemade custard mini toast, a sweet and creamy treat for just under $6. And for those looking for something more filling to share with friends, the $12.85 honey butter toast or mango sticky rice are hearty and delicious choices.

Students can also indulge in a variety of sweet crepes under $9, including the Go Strawberry Crepe with Nutella and fresh strawberries or the Berry Berry Crepe with blueberry sauce and vanilla ice cream. For those looking for a caffeine fix, the café’s selection of coffee and tea drinks includes classics like the $5.25 Chai Tea Latte. Milk tea and fruit tea lovers will also find much to enjoy at the cafe, such as the $4.95 taro milk tea or $5.35 four season tea. My personal favorite was their classic Thai milk tea, which is flavorful without being too sweet and, like their other drinks, bright and served in a cup with a smiling lid. Their taro milk tea with honey boba is also a great option, maintaining its distinct taro flavor without any unpleasant aftertaste.

A Day Cafe is an ideal spot for students to hang out and grab a bite to eat. With its lively menu and inviting feel, the cafe provides a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere that can help any student unwind and recharge. Whether Comets are looking for a caffeine fix, a sweet treat, or a cozy spot to socialize, A Day Cafe has something for everyone.
