  • Current Wi-Fi password is telegraph
  • Sit in the comfy chair in the back! It's super comfy, and here's a plug nearby. Be warned that you may fall asleep, because its super comfy. I think I mentioned that.
  • They're all about the pour over drip or French press - no espresso coffees here!
  • Cash only. Though there is an ATM machine in front.
  • Indoor bike parking--especially good on a rainy day.
  • Best enjoyed when Mountain Goats are accidentally cued up WAY TOO LOUD over the sound system. Giggles throughout the cafe.
  • Cash only, but no worries because they have an ATM machine.
  • They don't have an espresso machine. They only do drip medium and dark roast from Oakland's Bicycle Coffee.
  • Cash only. Get the bread pudding, you won't regret it :)
  • Best writing hideout in Temescal. Soon also open for wine evenings!
  • Delish kouign aman and iced teas.
  • Great vibes to start the day. Nice variety of breakfast at convenient prices. Loved how the furniture is placed in there!
  • The tea and the beer is good
  • This place has a great vibe. Good mix of cushiony reading chairs/couches and sturdy tables for getting work done. Music isnt tooooo loud. WiFi is decent. Coffee is OK.
  • Now goes by the name "Hawk & Pony." They now accept credit cards ($8 minimum).
  • Good coffee, decent wifi, lots of seating. Better-than-average coffee shop food makes it a good place to hunker down and get stuff done - just make sure your laptop is charged. Not a lot of outlets.
  • Great cafe, but cash only! Be sure to get a baked egg sandwich if they still have them.
  • The interior design is soooooo hipster/artsy. Coffee was a little bitter
  • Good place to work, but they're understaffed in the mornings and the quality is compromised. I'd go here to work, but I wouldn't go here to just drink coffee.
  • The bathrooms are oh so gross! No toilet paper. No paper towels. I couldn't use my foot to open the door, I was trapped. It was terrible.
