    Huge glass pots of tea come over a tiny candle to keep it warm. So pretty, and you can sit for a long time. Great place to "work from home".

    Really lovely interior, with lots of space to work. Good espresso. Get a pot of tea to share.

    I think I found my new favorite coffee shop. Good food/drinks, comfortable seating, tall ceilings, good music, nice vibe and friendly staff.

    Been here several times and not once has the owner greeted me. Along with his coffee, maybe he should begin his morning with a Boston Cream Cake. The pretty girl with colored eyes is always friendly!

    Nice place to hang out. Not much of food options though, and limited plug points for charging.

    This is a great German coffee House with authentic pastries & chocolates, strong coffee, good paninis and a wine bar. Sadly, people don't come for the menu but to see and be seen as entrepreneurs.

    Austrian cafe/wine bar. Amazing tea (get the pot), legit Austrian style sachertorte (chocolate cake), and a broad selection of German beers hard to find in the US. So happy I found this place!

    The croissants are the best ones I have tasted outside of France. I am told they're made by a French guy living in the Bay Area.

    Their pastries are killer. Hands down the best of any coffeehouse in area. Sandwiches are pricey, but can be split.
