    Great place to get soup and salad or panini sandwiches. The coffee is good alongside friendly service. Order at the counter and get your food when they call your name.

    Perhaps the best brownie in town. And where else can you page through Wire and Fader mags on the same newstand?

    The Gibraltar and bagel with Lox are great!

    You can grab some of the tons of magazines to read while you're drinking your coffee 👍

    Best coffee close to the Motivate Summit.

  • Brian S.

    Wifi is iffy but there's plenty of seating and the food is tasty. If you don't have anything serious to work on it's a good space to hunker down for a bit. The plethora of magazines are a nice perk.

    Brian S · May 20, 2015
  • Thomas G.

    Caffeine fix, amazing magazine selection, and yummy food--Vietnamese salad and peanut butter cookies are my faves

    Excellent espresso. Surprisingly good bagel and lox. Two walls of magazines you can pick up and read while you're here. My new favorite Oakland cafe.

    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!

    Nathalie Bernal · October 10, 2013
  • Vinay K.

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

    Vinay Krishnan · 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!

    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.

    Kensie Smith · March 9, 2013
  • Matt P.

    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.

    Matt Porreca · December 27, 2012
  • 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 Price · December 16, 2012

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

    Chez Us · October 22, 2011
  • Colleen M.

    Get the chocolate chip cookie. I usually only like my own home-baked cookies, but these are really exceptional.

    Colleen McGarry · September 25, 2011
