    It gets a little stuffy with all the California sunshine pouring in - sit at the shared table in the back, ask to open the window in the back corner, and enjoy the breeze!

    It's a lovely cafe, with good coffee and baked goods. Word of warning if you're looking for a place to work from: they only have two working power near the door, so maybe not so ideal.

    "We can't make an iced latte because Sightglass trains us not to. It would ruin the *integrity* of the bean." ~ This is just a coffee shop in NOPA, get over yourselves.

    Consider skipping any food order if you're in a rush. During busy times it can take up to 30 mins for something as simple as a bagel with cream cheese.

    No power for laptops. Does this really help coffee sales by driving away squatters or do squatters make the place look full and attract more take away service?
