  • Wifi password as of 4/11/2014: 1415larkin Their service has gone way down hill, and the guy with the mustache genuinely seems irritated that I was coming in to buy something and give them business.
  • "single-origin espressos, tricked-out Synesso Hydra machine, Chemex pour-over pots, free WiFi and Dynamo Donuts"
  • One of my favorite coffee shops. Can't go wrong with a latte or a regular drip. Great place to get some work done too.
  • Good coffee. They have my current favorite - Corado- on the menu. Location is odd though.
  • The owner is super awesome and hot
  • Best coffee north of market.
  • Hrrrmmm, drink coffee here, you will!
  • You might pay an extra 50cents per coffee (latte) but it is well worth it for their unique blend of roasted beans.
  • Their beef empanadas are delicious and leave you wanting more. Dynamo donuts sell out early! The Ethiopian drip's the way to go if you are into dark, full-bodied, slightly-bitter coffee!
  • The barista with the mustache is rude. No greeting, not willing to offer a helpful answer about something on the menu, telling me promptly when they close. He's always this way. I won't return.
  • Local coffee shop tht does it right!
  • Dynamo donuts, yum.
