    A little expensive but worth it for the expansive view towards the park and the airy atmosphere. Salad dressing was on point as was the coffee. Sit in the booth facing the street if you can

    Love these guys. Owner always says hello to the regulars, his staff are pleasant and attentive and happy to make your time there enjoyable. I recommend the paninis. All are great.

    Gio is a great cashier, bartender, and order taker. He was so nice during my big order for my table, and was able to handle multiple customer orders while tending to the bar.

    It's pricey, but I'm a big fan of local coffee shops and they do a good job. They're not super friendly, but it's easy to ignore.

    Snacks and sandwiches make the grade. Wifi keeps em coming. After the sun sets, the bar has it's own attractions. The booze ain't bad either. Avoid buying items from the traveling vendors in need of $

    Great atmosphere and outdoor seating with your pets. However the bartenders are a bit stand-offish at times & the last couple times I got a latte to go, I barely tasted espresso...just mostly milk

    Coffee is great. Ambiance is stellar for the closest place like this in tha hood. Outside seating is fab in the summer As long as no one is smoking. Then It's gross.

    If you have work to do, call ahead to see how busy they are because during peak times, they don't allow laptops. And outlets are few and far between!

    Come for the rich & fluffy blueberry pancakes, stay for the "home away from home" cafe feeling. Great place to meet people from around the world, too!

    They always have some sport on the TV (mostly soccer), which is a unique choice for a cafe (one that I personally love).

    Lady at the counter…I won't call her a barista because she wasn't one…tried to pass off a stale shot of espresso in my Americano. I noticed. She sheepishly remade it when I asked her or a fresh one.

    Great spot but there is no AC & no outlets to plug into ( they've been covered up. used to plug in all the time when this was Saurin Park). lack of outlets is a problem for those coming to do work

    Do not get take out. I just got this. Turkey an bread. I guess they forgot the lettuce, the tomato the onion and the side salad. It took 10 minutes to make and cost 10 bucks- really?

    Go to Birch or the Hungarian Pastry Shop instead. These people hate anyone with laptops. No wifi on the weekends, outlets covered up so you can't recharge. Just go elsewhere.

    Breakfast/brunch is overpriced and mediocre. Microwaved bacon, limp plain lettuce, canned salmon in the omlette, French toast comes in lake of fake syrup, disaffected staff. Good coffee though.
