    Want to swim in a soup of startup geeks? Come in here for your daily dose of "It's kind of a Groupon for..." and "Facebook API is all f...". I always see fellow Y Combinator founders in here.

    Also, pretty decent selection of gluten-free baked goods! Which taste even better when listening to cool new music :)

    They serve Four Barrel coffee here, but in many more ways. Order a fancy espresso drink however you like it!

    If the line is long or there are hecka people waiting, just buy coffee or tea. They sometimes take those orders on another register.

    Great place to work on a laptop, circa 2008. Since then, the coffee roast changed (badly), service declined, baristas are inexperienced and dogmatic, and wifi is usually borked. A failed experiment.

    If you do your best coding with a beer or margarita at your side, you'll have to BYO, sadly. Don't despair -- most blenders fit in backpacks.

    Is this a coffee shop or a co-working space? I'm confused. But some seriously inconsiderate patrons. Coffee is great though.

    You should know this place is owned by the Highway Community, a church. On the bright side all the profits go to charities, making them almost a non-profit
