Great place to work and meet

Good coffee, tea, snacks, lots of space on the second floor to have meetings and nice and cozy atmosphere on the first floor to have a break.

This was a very smooth latte. The atmosphere downstairs was loud and crowded, but I was taking mine to go anyway. I'd definitely go again.

Great coffee! But a bit too self concerned about being upscale low key. Agree that this is better than Starbucks (not a fan of) and had (cute and understated) holiday decorations. As visitors (read tourists) we did not return for a second cup... it felt too local. Using your electronics alone.... great for that!

Strong coffee, pretty good bakery selections and packed with patrons with laptops. The laptop to guest ratio is at least 1 to 1. Neighborhood feel, busy, community type coffee shop that makes a killer hot chocolate too.

This is the place to be if you want to get a feel of innovation and startups. The person sitting across from you sipping a latte could be the founder of Whatsapp, which was just acquired by Facebook for $19 billion. The movers and shakers in Silicon Valley are amazingly low key and look like normal people with a nerdish... More

Not sure if this still holds regularly, but there used to be open mic here with folks stepping up to sing on Monday nights. Great ambiance and coffee to go along with it with loads of cool people grooving along. A little cool spot on the one Mountain View street that has the most "action" in this city; Castro street.

Oooo. Sadly, I must speak up about my experience. Being Australian, I wanted a flat white (closest equivalent is a double/triple shot espresso with milk). The woman at the till had no time for me. I got my coffee (thankfully in a ceramic cup with handle not disposable rubbish). It was rust-coloured. This was alarming. I added some milk, sat... More

This place makes great coffee. The staff is friendly. They have a full open level upstairs where you can hangout and read or code or meet with friend. Definitely a place to hangout.

Nice coffee shop, friendly and helpful baristas, and a wonderful selection of coffees from around the world! When we bought a pound of coffee, we received a free cup of coffee (or a wooden nickel for a return visit for that cup of coffee!) Great shop.

I stopped in here just to grab a quick drink as I explored mountain view. The staff were super friendly and very nice and helpful. I even got a special Italian soda creation - strawberry, lemon, and lime. Absolutely delicious! I also liked that I was able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful Saturday. Definitely a good coffee place.
