Pro tips

This is a coffee shop attached to a lighting and home furnishings store. The cafe has a long seating bench (padded) with a couple of small, 1-2 top tables with chairs. School House Electric has a back space with a long library table, a couple of standing bars with an outlet, a quiet room you can use to take a call or study, and some comfy couches.

There are NO power outlets in the cafe, so you'll have to come after 10am when School House Electric opens, to find power.

    Very cool vibe here! The working area inside the store (walk towards the back and to the left) is really awesome. Good, classy music (Otis Redding right now) at a reasonable volume. Occasional train goes by but just adds to the quaintness. Recommended.

    Recent speed test for the school house electric area in the same space as this. Network SSID is Schoolhouse Electric – public. http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/4669361673

    Beautiful spot but power outlets are not available at all… unless you’re there after 10AM when the Schoolhouse Electric store opens. I hear there’s a nice place to sit (couches and tables) inside the store with power outlets available.

    I spent a few hours working here yesterday. It’s a nice spot in a very cool building. It’s essentially a shared space with the Schoolhouse Electric Co. The seating is limited, but comfy, and there are no power outlets. If you can work for a while without power, this is a good spot in NW. The WiFi is snappy and great coffee of course…
