In the mornings it's usually pretty dead, which is great! The back room can get pretty chilly during the winter, so prep yourself for that. The lights about the tables in the back have a power outlet on them. The front has outlets near most of the tables and the bench/bar seating. Afternoon can get crowded, thus slowing down the WiFi a bit.
Always new artwork cycling in and out. Music varies depending on who is working but it's a combo of riot grrl and indie/diy pop, not very loud though. Lighting is more on the darker side, since the front windows face North and the back windows are closed during the winter. In the back room there are individual lights over each table. No pets/No bikes.
