Pro Tips

Smaller space but well worth it for the coziness and neighborhood near by. Delicious coffee roasted in house.

  • This place really is small a counter serve with only 4 real laptop-on-table spots plus one couch. But I did find that many customers in and out for to-go coffee, so I camped successfully for a couple hours. There is a Starbucks about 1.5 blocks away too, so it makes me a little bit more confident that if I head here again but can’t get a table, there’s a backup not too far away. Staff are friendly and pour-overs have 3 roast options of the day.

    My speedtest was 14.5 down so faster than it lists here.
