Pro Tips

There's always a line for coffee or food because of the tourists. Three individual workstations with power.

  • 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.
