  • No outlets available anymore.

    I come here because it’s on my way to the gym. I make sure my laptop is charged up before coming here, as i don’t like to sit by the burnside windows, as the glare from the sun makes it difficult to see my laptop screen. It’s not quiet but I can focus just fine here most of the time. Sometimes there are smelly homeless people but I think since I complained about it they have fixed that problem. For the most part now the crowd consists of people reading, chatting, or working, rather than finding a place to seek refuge.

    As far as World Cup Roasters, the service is great. The same people have worked there for years. They know me and I know them. I usually get some tea, and fill up my water bottle when I need to at the spout.

  • Most come for the experience and the late night hours. Its normally pretty loud in here but if that’s your thing you’ll enjoy it. Grab a desk by the window w/an outlet for the most bang for your buck. And be sure to try Sizzle Pie (pizza) across the street if you get hungry.

    Come early to snag a spot next to an outlet… or come a bit later and make a friend (or three). Earlier in the day it’s quieter than most coffee shops, key if you’re an early bird and you get more sh!t done in the mornings.
