    If you're ordering anything decaf or non-coffee, you're doing it wrong.

    This place is pretty sweet! The baristas are kind. The music is funky. And if you come on a lucky day... You may meet the brilliant Jack Dorsey! :))

    Beautiful space with extremely high ceilings, but higher than average prices. This location does not offer any wifi nor outlets. Not a good place to do any work on your laptop.

    3 random things to like: 1. Low toxin coffee (no mold)! 2. Zero attitude from baristas - seriously, you expect some 'tude but you'll find everyone is super friendly; 3. No Pink soap! Real soap!

    Sightglass is a celebration of coffee, not just a quick caffeine fix. You won't find wi-fi here. Leave the latte behind & drink a black drip coffee: it's sweet here, not bitter like you might expect.

    Coffee here is amazing. The ambience is pretty unique too, you'll see sacks and sacks of stuff- maybe coffee beans. You won't find a menu at the back of the barista either. Love this place.

    I was very disappointed. I've had the coffee before. But today, my Americano was short, muddy and note-less. And the staff, disturbingly aloof, and charged me for my replacement drip-coffee! 😳

    Sit upstairs and watch the baristas work their magic. There are also weekly Friday cuppings in the afternoon in the lab on the loft.

    Productivity: 4 stars. Gorgeous internals with 2 floors, first serving coffee, and 2nd for chat/working. Could be crowded at times.

    Airy and bright - great place to enjoy a book and cup of coffee. I do wish the had bigger sizes of the to-go drip :)

    The 2nd floor seating offers a sweeping grand view from above, it’s a great spot to perch and savor your drink.
