    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 :)

    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.

    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.
