Pro Tips

Small and cozy with large outdoor patio out back; it's a great place to get work done as individual or in a small group when the weather is nice. There are sails draped above to block direct sunlight, which helps to prevent glare on your screen. Can get crowded on weekends.

There's a "secret" (not really) study space in an upstairs apartment next door (access via a door on the front patio; ask barista for door code). It's basically a two room apartment that feels like a sad, abandoned law office, but it's quiet. There are two rooms with chairs, tables, and a couch, plus a bathroom. Not much ambience, but a "buckle down" work space. In the main coffee shop, the interior is limited for working (it's small, and no laptops at the main table).
