Pro Tips

Delicious coffee, and excellent service. Awesome tables with lamps to work at, and plenty of space to lounge on the couch while catching up on work. Best spot for easy power outlets is at the community tables (there are two). No time limit on staying to work or on wifi access. WiFi password frequently changes but the current password can be found on cards (sometimes floppy disks) scattered throughout the cafe.

Gets crowded around 2-3PM and on weekends. It gets loud around 7PM (they turn on the volume on the music - or it seems that way). Outdoor seating in the warmer months. It's a bit hipster-y and has become tourist-y because of their kitschy sci-fi theme (they have a DeLorean parked in the place).

Easy bicycle parking. Easy to get to by train and bus. Not easy car parking (crowded area and limited time zones).

  • This is my “home” coworking cafe — the one I return to most often. IMO, they have the most talented baristas in the city. Plus, 90’s music, late hours, and a plug for every seat. What’s not to love.

  • Kool spot. Nice coffee.
