Foursquare Tips

  • Frank La, formerly of Cafe Dulce, manages this hip coffee shop where he shows off the skills that sent him to the Barista Championships.
  • They don't serve food all day, which is unfortunate because it's all tasty. Order the "Shakerato" if you want a lightly sweetened, iced, 2 shots of espresso. Enjoy!
  • new policy they're trying out: no wifi during Sunday brunch.
  • The Shakerato is a must try.
  • Their pour overs are damn good!
  • Amazing Coffee! Reminds me of the good coffee shops in Tokyo
  • Very generous with their portions and not stingy on ingredients. The croque Madame + side kale salad is the perfect meal. Add the Salted Caramel Alfogado and it's pure heaven.
  • Almond croissant has a nice crunch with a generous crust of almond slivers. Good options/mix-ins for different coffee lovers: pour-over, cortados, milk, honey, agave, raw sugar.
  • They shut down Wi-Fi until 3pm for the brunch crowd on Sunday. Good idea.
  • Have the Gatuiri Espresso. Insanely good.
  • Tried to order brunch at 1:58 when it ends at 2. Apparently that's unacceptable. I call bullshit.
  • Street parking is free until 8 am. So you have no excuse not to come here.
  • My friend got an oolong tea which was equally as yummy. Love the environment, study friendly!
  • Great coffee and atmosphere. Perfect place to study. Coffee only second to Jones Coffee Roasters, but closer to Old Town.
  • The kale salad is spectacular, very tasty!
  • Wifi password = cupofgrace
  • They make their French toast with housemade bread - it was delicious and you can get an optional extra of eggs and/or bacon delicious
  • They are basically specialized in coffee especially and tea. They grind the coffee beans for you and they make it fresh!
  • That open-faced veggie sandwich is messy to eat but oh so tasty.
  • Not too many places you can get decent French toast or chorizo hash with an amazing cup of coffee.
