JM had a bottle of Fanta.
Nichole had a coffee and bought a Divine dark chocolate bar.
The bill was $5, plus tip.
JM gave Cafe Atrio a C-; Nichole gave Cafe Atrio a C (see our grading rubric).

Quit triflin

Cafe Atrio is sometimes the name given to the coffee counter in the University Bookstore on Library Mall. They serve Cokes, candy, chips, quescently frozen treats and Starbucks (the next Starbucks being 135 feet away).

We say "sometimes given" because there's no sign that says Cafe Atrio, and when we asked the barista whether the place had a name, she said, "It's just University Bookstore."

Its existence is futile.
