Pro tips

Outlets near the tables and benches along the wall. Seating only - no standing desks. 2 comfy benches along the inner brick wall and 2 lounge chairs along the outside. Citibikes and Franklin St Station subway station out front. From someone who works here daily: music is loud & large influx of people daily between noon and 2pm. Avoid lunch time if you're trying to get work done. Excellent spot prior to noon and after 2pm if you don't mind loud music. Beautiful spot, free and reliable wifi, clearly designed for people to sit and work for a while. Food and drink is very good but also pricey. You get what you pay for! Rated it as Noisy because be careful where you sit! The music is very nice and instrumental but if you sit under a speaker, even your earbuds won't cancel out the noise. Also, if you want a good seat, get here early or around 2, after the lunch rush has died down a bit.

    Was really excited to test out the wifi here. Turns out they haven’t rebooted the router in ages because all my devices are getting DHCP lookup failures. :/

    Fast wifi, well priced menu. Mixed toilet, often busy, but well kept.

    Decent wifi, good coffee, but dude it’s loud, mostly because everyone has to talk over the music. I’m measuring 80db with my phone. Bring your noise canceling headphones and your yelling voice 🙂

    Oof… So excited for this place, but massively let down. Terribly frustrating decision- their in house admin wifi takes the 2.4g band and they only share the 5g band. I work off a 2yr old Lenovo that doesn’t have a compatible network card. So while my phone gets a blazing 111 down and 12 up on a speed test, my laptop is a paperweight.

    At least there’s cold brew…

    I just got here and I freaking love the place! Great space, fast wifi and outlets everywhere. The volume is a little high, but if you have headphones, you are good to go.

    Fantastic – beautiful, reliable WiFi, and gorgeous baristas.

    Just got here after 2pm – plenty of space and got 115 down / 11 up on the WiFi! Maybe they’ve upgraded since July 🙂

    Bummer! Anything specific we can share around how the wifi is terrible? Disconnects often, doesn’t let you connect to VPN, etc.? Thanks for you help — we strive to surface the most relevant info for workability.

    Beautiful setting, but the wifi is terrible.
