Good place to work, but they're understaffed in the mornings and the quality is compromised. I'd go here to work, but I wouldn't go here to just drink coffee.
The bathrooms are oh so gross! No toilet paper. No paper towels. I couldn't use my foot to open the door, I was trapped. It was terrible.
No AC! It is a little too hot if the sun is out. If it is jacket weather outside this place is perfect.
Cash only. Pretty warm inside.
Great Beet Sandwich.
Get a hot mango tea
Good for breakfast and hangouts
Good breakfast. Poached eggs on toast. Indoor parking for bike.
One of the baristas speaks Russian!
Most awfully prepared latte on the east bay.
Current Wi-Fi password is telegraph
Ideal study and chat cafe
Arbor was great!! A new favorite coffee shop to add to my list and the first in Temescal since Betty dropped espresso from her line-up a few years ago. Recommended!
Brie toast and honey. Yes!
The woman server with long red hair who works on Saturday PM? Very unpleasant & disrespectful, I think, because I'm older than the typical denizen. I hope she doesn't treat all her customers this way
Best enjoyed when Mountain Goats are accidentally cued up WAY TOO LOUD over the sound system. Giggles throughout the cafe.
The wifi network here is really really overloaded and just bad. Make sure you have backup options in case it goes down (hotspot, phone, etc)!
Cash only, but no worries because they have an ATM machine.
They don't have an espresso machine. They only do drip — medium and dark roast from Oakland's Bicycle Coffee.
This place is *always* packed. Friendly vibes and the perfect opportunity for people watching. Pull up a chair and make friendly conversation with your neighbor while enjoying some solid beverages!
Cash only. Get the bread pudding, you won't regret it :)
They're all about the pour over drip or French press - no espresso coffees here!
Cash only. Though there is an ATM machine in front.
Floor pump with schrader and presta and a gauge, hooks to hang your bike, drip coffee, loads of thrift store furniture, good food.
Best writing hideout in Temescal. Soon also open for wine evenings!
Sit in the comfy chair in the back! It's super comfy, and here's a plug nearby. Be warned that you may fall asleep, because its super comfy. I think I mentioned that.
Wonderful breakfast. Get granola and tea.
Indoor bike parking--especially good on a rainy day.
Indoor bike parking!
