    Great place to work. A real cafe, like you'll find in North Beach in the City.…Nothing slick. Also, some sidewalk tables/seating and they roast their own beans!

    Good music + good coffee. Friday night Jazz is fantastic. Check the board for the performance schedule.

    They roast their own beans, it's full of local unpretentious people, and they make an Italian–approved espresso. Solid choice for MtV!

    Such a great vibe! Just be aware it's cash only (unless you're old-school and using cheques, which they accept too!)

    Great natural lighting. A bit noisy but fine if you have a good set of headphones. Best seats are on the raised "stage" next to the windows.

    Great place, but the hours are based on the caprices of the owner. One night he decided to close the cafe at 9:20 pm although the business hours state that the cafe is open until 10 pm.

    We buy our beans here, only local place with a good dark roast. BE FOREWARNED: the owner WILL try to talk you out of buying what you want to buy, and WILL give bullshit reasons. They are weird.

    The house made chai has honey in it. Didn't really have many vegan options either but do have lots of milk alternatives.

    Quite literally (as a former slinger of the bean) the best espresso I've had the pleasure to imbibe.

    Very light-roasted coffee (heavier on caffeine content than flavor) but the *best* chai (no oregon pre-made swill)

    An honest, non-hipster local coffee shop. The owner roasts all the beans.

    Lame service - waited 25 min for knish after asking repeatedly and patiently waiting; asked for a refund in the end - try red rocks nearby

    No power. They don't provide power to customers. So don't plan on working here today.
