Pro Tips

Outlets along the perimeter benches. One long community table in the center doesn't have access to power. Bright, cooler and located on the new PSU campus. Can access PSU WiFi if you have an account or the cafe's WiFi. They're relatively new and still working out router issues so not reliable just yet.

  • Cozy spot. There’s a great standing bar for laptops at the east side window. A good amount of food choices are available: light sandwiches, fresh pastries, coffee, tea, chai, etc. I’m having a tomato basil panini, raspberry scone, and Dragon Fly chai. The wifi is fast at 57 Mb/s and no password necessary for “oldschoolguest”. Friendly customer service too.

    For Comcast users, “xfinitywifi” was averaging 15 Mb/s. Old School is open until 8pm in case you’re working late or if PCC library is closed.

  • We’re located on the new PCC SE Campus. Walk, ride or park at Bank of West when they are closed and walk across the grass and there we are….. Wifi router replaced and all is good to go!!! We bake all are pastries and serve up fresh sandwiches & soup each day.
