    Love them brownies they have. Cool place for a quick bite, salads are good too. But lines before class starts can get ridiculously long. Get your coffee before Berkeley time! (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    as the semester rolls on, it becomes harder to get a seat here...try to be social and ask to share someone else's table...i guarantee they will leave and you'll have a whole table to yourself! :)

    Bring cash or your cal1 card! Good place to study if you can get a seat, especially since it's open until 2am most nights.

    Wear a warm coat and enjoy the outdoor seating even in winter -- it's quieter than indoors and quite beautiful.

    More likely than not, if you sit inside the cafe, there will be some of the most annoyingly jabbery people sitting next to you. Advice- use headphones

    Their soup selection changes daily and it comes with two pieces of bread. Their asparagus cream soup I had was really good!

    What was the FSM? Stop in the cafe, grab a bite to eat, learn about the free speech movement, and increase your Cal street cred! Read more

    The bad: extremely hard to get a table. The good: their coffee is strong!

    An iconic place on campus, but nothing special when it comes to the food or drinks.
