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

Friendly place with lots of people working on computers. Don't see a spot to sit? There's a whole other floor upstairs that is easy to miss.

I went for evening coffee to this location. I asked for decaf coffee which they had (some places don't offer decaf coffee when it is made fresh). The coffee was quite strong but not bad. I asked if they would give me warm milk. They were kind enough to do so since a lot of place won't warm the milk.... More

One of my favorite places to have a coffee. I've been to this both with friends and on business. Coffee shop has more space on the second floor. Grab a table and enjoyed high quality coffee. You will enjoy it!

Their espresso blends are terrific! Opens at 7 am and gets crowded quickly. It is in an old original Mountain View building on the corner. Parking on the side street or go to the back where there is a free parking lot.

Yes the chai and pastry are deliciously great and pricey but the staff who works there needs to be trained to be amicable. At least pretend to be amicable..how hard can that be! I was not even done with my naughty chai (dirty chai for some) and one of the serves took my cup and plates away. I am not... More
