Pro tips

Close to Mt Tabor, convenient location if you want to take a mid-day hike. Scruffy hardwood floors, small tables, big tables, coffee tables, and couches. Outlets are along wall across from the bar, underneath the bench seats.

Vintage political memorabilia line the walls and they play an eclectic selection of music from artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Patsy Cline, Yma Sumac, Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin, Madonna, Leonard Cohen, Erasure, White Stripes, and The Cure. Expect to find people of all ages eating, drinking, working, reading, playing card games, and talking.

    Here at about 1:45pm on a Thursday afternoon and there’s plenty of space available. The WiFi is solid, the food is good and the vibe is productive. They’ve made some updates to the types of seating since my last visit. The larger community table has been removed and there is now a nice row of standing/bar height seating that faces the windows (great if you like natural light).

    Great food from savory to sweet and wonderful coffee. My go-to spot for working away from home. Consistently pretty busy but I’ve never had a problem nabbing a spot. There is a bar along the window if you’re in a pinch but most often there is a seat available.

    Menu includes bagels, croissant sandwiches, soup and chili, pie, quiche, and pre-packaged cookies (gluten free, vegan selections).

    Sandwiches are very good here.

    Table near the front works well for groups (up to 5 or 6) and some sofa/lounge chair seating if you’re looking for it. Good natural light and a nice selection of food.
