  • The tomato basil mozzarella salad is delicious and comes with a hunk of focaccia.
  • there are two sets of power outlets upstairs. go to the furthest table on the right.
  • Great place to get some work done. Sit upstairs in the cove for meetings if the noise below is too much. Window seat for me! Large roomy windows and good coffee. (2 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • Speak clearly or they WILL get your order wrong.
  • The AmEx special doesn't work here since they only take Visa/MasterCard!
  • Chicken sandwich, and add avocado. Enough said.
  • The chillest vibe.
  • Mocha or any of their coffee drinks and their egg bagels. Reasonably priced.
  • They don't mix the chocolate syrup in the mochas. That's a weird thing to do (or not do, as it were).
  • Choco chip scone is good. Mocha glacier has a bit of weird, powdery aftertaste, disappointingly. More than anything, the interior is great (esp at summertime, when not congested with college students)
  • nice for studying, solid outlet access
  • Food is okay coffee is pretty good. But wifi is the worst.
  • I had a kind of business meeting. It may be good for work here.
  • A classic Berkeley cafe for meeting up with friends. When I was in school I think I people watched and socialized more than I studied here. Good times. :-)
  • There's not enough lighting inside. Don't recommend here for studying.
  • Awesome place to study or work. Great music and atmosphere. Good fresh pastries and coffee.
  • Good pastries, good coffee, great music and upstairs seating. Awesome place to study or work.
  • Standard-fare coffee near campus. Gets crowded, very warm upstairs, noisy. Would not recommend for meetings (but students will do it anyway).
  • A nice place to sit upstairs and get work done.
  • Chicken or turkey sandwiches with focaccia bread
