    If you're out near Berkeley, Local 123 is a nice shop that features Chemex brewed coffee with a metal Kone filter. They also have a nice outdoor sitting area out back.

    Credit card minimum is only $5 now! Latte and a small cookie will do the trick :)

    Get a pour over coffee with the Kone filter and enjoy the extra flavor.

    Decent coffee! Also had lovely butternut squash ricotta toast with orange salt and a delish sea salt dark choc cookie! Great place to work, outlets at outdoor bench and at big table at the back.

    Felt like I spent too much for too little. The quality of the coffee was good, but the cup size...I didn't think they made cups that short.

    Espresso and pour over, great snacks

    Ugh. So slow.

    Bring cash. $10 minimum is steep (and I've been stuck w it three weeks running). The pastry from Brittany is ridiculously good.

    Gabby H · February 4, 2014

    Bring Cash! $10 minimum on cards. Latte + almond milk is good

    Brian Leung · December 31, 2013
  • Denise K.

    They have almond milk and four barrel coffee. Yum.

    Denise Kalinowski · December 21, 2013
  • Nick Q.

    Get the poached eggs with greens. Seriously.

    New menu has kale

    Valerie Howell · April 10, 2013

    The latte here saddles the line between second (dark) and third (green) wave coffee better than anything. Pretty much perfect. Perfect. Perfect.

    For parents of little ones, one of the bathrooms has changing table (yea!) . The garden patio fits strollers and is a great place to sit with yummy coffee and snacks.

    If you are looking for a glass handle 10 cup chemex here is where you can get one ( or Sweet Marias on week days)

    Local poach for the win!

    Monica Rosenberg · February 6, 2012
  • Lachlan D.

    Try the single origin espresso, from Coava Coffee in PDX.

    Lachlan Donald · November 21, 2011

    Excellent advice

    Saw the painting on Berkeleyside and wanted to see it - our referral group meeting was a perfect opportunity

    Alex is a great barista! Best experience I've had at a coffee shop.

    Jason Koroll · September 2, 2011
  • Jereme M.

    Really nice spot to work. Awesome back patio. Get a pour-over from a Coava Kone!

    Jereme Monteau · August 16, 2011

    Strong coffee, but staff a bit out there, got into a debate as to just how strong i am to handle my coffee, when I say double, I MEAN DOUBLE, no questions, just let me HAVE IT Read more

    more random tips: the peanut butter cookies are delicious and wheat-free. enjoy the outdoor patio on a nice day, especially when the neighborhood kitty visits. they also sell hario brewing equipment.

    joanne · March 17, 2011

    Really good oatmeal

    really good oatmeal

  • Daniel M.

    Another good place to find coffees from multiple roasters. Don't neglect their pour-over bar.

    Get the red Bionade and marvel at how inferior other soft drinks are.

    jason moore · October 11, 2010

    Great place for coffee. No power outlets though.

    egg sandwich is yummy

    The Kenya is amazing

    try a single-origin espresso. they do a pretty good job of wrangling them here, and that's no easy task.

    joanne · April 27, 2010

    Don't show up with a book without headphones or a lot of focus. The click-clacking of keyboards makes it a little tough. And it's always going on. Coffee is good, though.

    Hipster heaven (cool kid h-e-double hockey sticks). Quakenbush for president!
