Essentials Java & Juice - Santee

I'll start right off by saying I like to see the little guys make a go of it. While I don't dispute the quality of Starbucks or Jamba Juice, let's face it - they don't stand a chance of going out of business. So there's this new place in Santee next to T-Mobile in the same mall as Big Lots and Home Town Buffet. Good coffee, great smoothies (try The Edge), tea, muffins, panninis, sandwiches and wraps. Nothing extraordinary, but good quality and service. The coolest part is they have lots of space and plenty of couches, tables and chairs for relaxing and enjoying your goodies. If you're in the neighborhood - and I see a couple of you live in the area, as I do - give them a try.
