Noise is in the form of conversations and blenders, espresso machines, and such running. Appears kid friendly, haven't seen any dogs. Located in Whole Foods, if you get hungry, you can get a wide mix of foods for any diet including Paleo, gluten free, vegan. Tables are great for working with a graphics tablet and laptop. The WiFi is spotty: at times fast and others, slow. Seating is available for guests with a Whole Foods Market purchase.
