I'm torn about how many stars to give. It's a great place, great vibe, terrific for meetings or just to get some work done but the coffee is just awful. Tastes burnt and sour. I keep coming back and hoping, against all hope, that something will have changed but alas, no... Also, nothing to eat here except for baked goods... More

We were looking for a place with good coffee and something light for breakfast and we found the right to place. Great coffee. We had a raw bar and a croissant and both were good.

Stopped in for a coffee at Red Rock - this is little gem in Mountain View. Great choices of coffees and espresso, Very cool place ideal for just chillin'.

Great coffee and service. The line was long a couple times but it moved fast. Tried a couple other places nearby and Red Rock was by far my favorite!

They hold open-mic evening on Mondays. t was a lot of fun to listen to budding artists. Quality varies, but its great they get a stage and audience.

I always take some home. Great hip atmosphere, coffee that is perfectly prepared, and you can take some home. There are special occasions weekly. The store has 2 levels and seating outside. It's also very calm and the staff is friendly and helpful.

If you want great coffee or tea and a nice place to catch up on email or meet a business associate, this is worth a stop. In the heart of downtown Mtn View, you can't beat the location. Music on some nights and outdoor seating available.

Mainstay of downtown Mountain View, great coffee selections, the go-to place when for informal business hellos. Also looks like a lot of internet daters have their first meeting for coffee here. Strong internet, but not sure how secure it is.

Red Rock Coffee Company has been my go-to place for years when I want to spend little more time enjoying moments in life: grabbing coffee with a friend, studying or sinking into the next book on my reading list, working on a major project on my laptop... it's just the perfect environment! Red Rock is split into two halves. The... More
