    I had a latte and a lox bagel, both were delicious! Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Unfortunately, there are no electrical outlets but other than that really enjoyed this cafe! :)

    Fabulous Crepes and amazing coffee. Great place to get some work done. Sit in the sun outside or park yourself in a corner inside. Free wifi with very decent speeds. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    I love this place, but as a former barista, I cannot wrap my head around how long it takes them to make any espresso drink...

    Happy hour 3-6pm! $3 anything on tap (of which they have at least a dozen options, Guinness, some IPAs, even a cider).

    Coffee and breakfast is really good! They're really efficient at taking orders at the counter, so don't get scared off if you see a long line.

    You'll undoubtedly run into a fellow VC, entrepreneur, and tesla owner here so eat your delicious chocolate cookie in a well-mannered way and don't talk smack.

    If you're stopping by for drinks after work, do the responsible this and show up 20 mins early so you can slam a burrito at the neighboring Iron Cactus first

    The Santa Fe Chicken Salad is great. Lots of juicy chicken plus avocado, feta, lettuce, tomatoes, corn, and a light vinaigrette. Yum.

    If you want the perfect ratio of milk to espresso, order a wet cappuccino! Another plus: less milk than a latte, so you'll most likely finish drinking before it gets cold.

    Oh god. Salted caramel icecream. I'll say no more. (Other than - when there's a big queue, try the side window - fewer options, but much quicker.)

    Order a croissant breakfast sandwich, no meat, and customize it with veggies instead (spinach, tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms). Pair it with an iced drink of your choice.

    An awful iced mocha. Has an unexpected hazelnut flavor, tons of sugar, and hardly a hit of espresso. Mostly milk and ice.
