Pro Tips

Get here early to get a seat. Or consider it a great way to get to know another mobile worker when you share a table.

Dominican Joe is a comfortable place to work with numerous inside/outside seating options. It seems to be consistently busy throughout the day (thanks to the ambiance and great coffee!), so seating choices can be limited.

  • This location is now called Bennu Coffee. It is 24/7 which seems crazy to me, but it stays busy into the night. Sometimes it will be aglow with laptop screens at 11:00 pm!

  • • WiFi is incredibly slow (fast.com says 1.3mbps).
    • Prices for coffee reflect the cost of the area, about $4 for a mug of tea, $4-6 for coffee.
    • No bicycle parking, but there is some nearby at the burrito place at the other end of the plaza.
    • Decent vibes, relaxed background music.
    • No outlets unless tables are against the wall, and even then there’s not enough for each table to have a single outlet

  • Coffee is very good and they have Taco Deli tacos, so that won me over. I really like this coffee shop. Ton of natural light and plenty of tables. They also have an outdoor patio which I will try out during a non-summer month.
    The baristas are all very nice and helpful, and the internet is pretty good. There have been a few moments today where it has slowed down a bit, but they have two networks, so that helps.
    There is a nice buzz of conversation, but it is not too loud. I will definitely come back to this coffee shop to work soon.
