    Their americano is good and strong, but the rest of the menu is pretty weak.

    Cal on focaccia and Greco salad are both good!

    If you're studying at Sacks and you feel tired it's really nice to go to nearby Willard Park to take a nap.

    I don't know what's with the music here. Now it is 70s soft rock and really terrible. But it used to be movie music like Danny Elfman stuff.

    The way the Internet Wi-Fi is set up at Sacks sometimes it doesn't like new people on. If this is the case you should ask them the counter to reset the Wi-Fi and then it will let you on.

    Sometimes the Internet doesn't work here at all, and when they reset it it doesn't help.

    If you ask for any drink "for here" they sever it to you in a mug and you get more for the same price :)

    They won't restart the wireless router here anymore, so if you've got one of those picky computers that needs it, you're out of luck here…

    Not exactly in the same category asCafe Strada on a sunny day, but amazing atmosphere and great location! Can't complain. Just don't expect to find a table on the weekends or during midterms.

    Coffee is dark and bitter – really not my taste. And it's kinda depressing in here with 24/7 computer zombies stressing over schoolwork.

    Awesome study spot during the week, plus the salads are delicious! Weekends are crowded, which means hard to find a decent-sized table & wi-fi is terribly slow/practically unusable.

    Most stable WiFi out of all the nearby cafes in Berkeley, and also tons of power outlets! And great paninis. :P

    Pretty chill, well designed coffee shop that's great for the couple intimate minutes we creatives need. The cappuccino is quite good, the baristas boast about there cafe skills and are friendly.

    Great study environment. Off a bit from the busy side of college makes parking not to bad.

    Usually I like food here, but I just ordered a rare earth panini and it is disgusting. Avoid that one.

    If you're hungry, get the panini/salad combo. You get half a salad and practically a full panini!

    If the music gets too loud the staff are usually pretty happy to turn it down. The songs have different volume levels and it's usually unintended that it gets loud.

    LOVE this place. The food is amazing and it stays open late. The downside, lots of tables squished too close together. Get there early and save a table near the wall if you need an outlet.

    Good music and food. The chai is mediocre but everything else is pretty awesome and all of the studying students are motivation to get work done.

    Hot chocolate tastes terrible. It is made with a mix. Good place to study though

    Try the tomato cucumber bagels to start off your day. The hearty slices of tomatoes and the cool crunch if cucumbers is great brain food.

    They brew their coffee a cup at a time, and it's worth it.

    Sacks is great! It's always busy, but if you hover for a bit you're sure to find a table and an outlet. Good coffee and tasty food, although a little pricey... but worth it for the free-wifi!

    There are power outlets across the bottom of the bench seats.
