Pro tips

Lively, cool, neighborhoody space that has a social feel reminiscent of pre-laptop '90s coffeehouses (in a good way), though plenty of people are working on laptops. Often crowded. Large-ish indoor space and recently-expanded garden patio (with many umbrellas and shading).

The switch to dinner (table) service at 6:00. Between 4:00 and 6:00, they have a happy hour while they do the transition -- it's fine to keep working, though it gets a little louder and some furniture gets moved, and they have some alcohol specials. People who had been there before 6:00 are "grandfathered" in to stay after 6:00, but they won't seat new people for non-dinner service after 6, and it's NOT kosher to be on a laptop after 6.

No WiFi on weekends (for obvious reasons due to crowding). Sunday morning farmer's market outside.
