    One of my fave coffee spots in East Bay. Great lattes.

    Great panini and coffee if you are over Bakesale Betty's overhyped fare.

    If you sit at the high bar in the balcony, don't drop your knife accidentally. Aftermath between the trajectory of object, gravitational pull & coffee at the bottom could be hazardous.

    Don't forget to grab a coffee refill. You'll save a whole 10 cents on your second cup. Tell them Chris sent you for this sweet discount.

    They have lots if tables, so this is the ideal place to study at! Their lattes are to die for! Their mushroom panini was bomb! Their cookies and yogurt with granola and fruit are yummy! 2 thumbs up!

    If it's crowded try upstairs. I didn't realize there was one for awhile. There are some board games and a couch up there too.

    Everyone deserves a cold cup of Sangria on a hot day, especially when that day is Friday.

  • Vinay K.

    Cappuccino was way too milky. Not enough bite. Also a tad too foamy. Pretty much a latte.

    Vinay K. · September 4, 2013
  • Martha H.

    The steel cut oats are truly comforting. No weird added sugar, and topped (upon request) with actual fresh fruit. Most recently: blueberries, strawberries, and pears. Lovely!

    I love that they have almond milk and nice cocoa powder to add to my coffee. I hate that they close at 9pm... way too early!

    Great coffee, tons of magazines from around the world, lots of outside seating thanks to 3 parking space long parkette, and a plethora of bike parking. Oh yeah, and free wifi. Def my new home office.

  • Elizabeth P.

    Get a super delicious bagel with lox, onions & capers. They put the capers on the bottom of the pile so they don't roll off your bagel!

    Elizabeth P. · December 16, 2012

    Quite possibly the best straight up iced coffee you will ever have.

  • Chez U.

    Great turkey sandwich; mustard dressing is really good. Don't sit out front, it smells like cat pee.

    Chez U. · October 22, 2011
  • Carrie S.

    The service is hit or miss. The girl that works the counter is awesome. The boy... Not so much.

    Carrie S. · September 6, 2011
  • Camille K.

    Vegan ginger snap cookies rival the robust magazine section!
