    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! :)

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    Great place to study as a student, mild chatter to focus you.

    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
