Noshing/Sipping: There are cookies and breads for sale.  Also, you can pick up Coca-Cola in the bottle for $2.

Bonus: Nice, quiet area to sit and enjoy the ambiance of the Satellite to visit and/or read.  Pictures of satellites adorn the walls; neat little toys are also showcased.  As to the mochas, they are simply the best I have ever tasted.

The Satellite:  Besides the Sixth Avenue location, there are two others in orbit in T-Town - one at 817 Division Ave. and another at 1122 Market St.
