P.A.M.'s Serves Hazelnut Vanilla Coffee

Today I visited the Richmond Hill's Central Library Branch for a change of scenery and to get a little computer work done. 

On the way out I stopped at P.A.M.'s Coffee & Tea (near the library's main circulation desk at 1 Atkinson Street, Richmond Hill).  I checked out the flavoured coffees a the front counter and  made my order. 

The Order: 1 Medium Hazelnut Vanilla Coffee.

For a grand total of $1.85 (including my harmonized governmental satisfaction tax contribution) I had purchased some odd ounces of delicious tasting Hazelnut Cream Coffee.

The flavoured coffee is similar to what you would find at Second Cup locations.  However, this location only has two flavours as opposed to the usual 4 or 5 found at a Second Cup.  The taste is almost right on and the price is similar as well to what you find at Second Cup. 

The counter itself is kind of hidden away on the main floor of the Central Library.  It is currently located on the main floor near the circulation desk and the extensive DVD collection. 

Perhaps a better location would be up on the 3rd floor where the stacks and study tables are located.  That way library users who are browsing or wanting to read a book in the library can do so with a hot cup of coffee in hand.   It would probably also increase sales as most people would probably skip the coffee counter if they are going to the circulation desk and check out their books in order to go home.

Overall, the coffee is pretty good, but the location is in the wrong place.
