I like the warm tones of these images. How does the Enterprise press handle warm/dark colors? Does it print pretty accurately?

Bryon,
Depends on the day. If they have a good print run, it rocks. If not, it doesn't. :-(

Justin,
It's next to Gander Mountain at Dowlen and Hwy 69.

Yea guys Sertinos Cafe is a very nice and cozy place. I work in the Sertinos that just opened up in Beaumont,Tx and i'de have to say I love it. Cliff and Nancy Hilton (the owners) are always talking to our "guests" and they just make everyone feel at home. I believe that Sertinos is going to make it and people are going to come and try our coffee and fall in love with it. Everyday I hear poeple say how much they enjoyed our sandwiches and coffee and that they are glad that theres a new place to sit down and eat or drink coffee and just relax. So, if yall havnt been to Sertinos yet, yall are missing out.

I'm sitting at this Sertino's right now... If every Sertino's franchise is going to be run like this one, it will be a nationwide hit. Cliff is awesome, and always gives personal attention to the customers. I used to go to Rao's all the time, but Sertino's has them beat hands down as a cafe. Rao's should stick to being a bakery now.

I read on the Sertino's site that they're planning to open a franchise in Syracuse, NY also... which is very coincidental for me, as if I ever move from the Beaumont area, Syracuse is actually my first choice - now I know I would have a Sertino's there as well.
