Pro Tips

Communal seating in the back at tall/standing tables. Power easily accessible along the walls at most tables. Free street parking is limited on popular Mississippi, so you may have to wander into the residential streets. Bike racks out front. Full windows in the front and near-ceiling windows along the side provide ample natural light, with a few darker spots in the way back.

  • This is my favorite workplace. If I can snag one of the tables in the way back I am a very happy worker! Cozy and nice staff. Endless tea options.

  • I agree that this space is lovely! It’s nice to sit at tables that don’t wobble and the tall tables at the back are decent if you want to stretch out your legs and stand a bit. Try the #19 rose tea as a latte — it’s delicious. They also normally have all their kombucha flavors on tap and you can combine them for one-of-a-kind flavors unique to you.

  • Loving this space! The communal tables have old-school library/office lamps, readily available power and are gorgeous what looks like inlaid white maple — very sturdy w/no wobble. The tables are standing height and my only complaint is that the stools aren’t sized for ergonomic sitting w/a laptop — you’ll want a laptop stand if you want to work comfortably for a while. The seating tables and chairs are appropriate. And there’s 2 lounge chairs for relaxed reading/studying.
