Free WiFi, seating that looks out onto 101, great açaí bowls and coffee. Better than a Starbucks! Outdoor seating, too. Nice place to hang out.

Modern coffee shop - fantastic atmosphere. Industrial chic decor, interesting drinks menu as well as firm favourites. Free WiFi, plenty of seating and a limited menu of interesting breakfast and lunch food, really well made.
