I find myself in Sebastopol for work four or five times a year. I found Retrograde on my last visit. Went back each day I was in town. Great coffee that is balanced and richly flavored. I am glad they ship so I can order...it for my home. The breakfast sandwich is delicious! I would fly back just to have it again. Lunch sandwiches sounded great. Can't wait to go back and try those next. They are a great way to start your day. Definitely worth visiting when you are in the area.More

We enjoyed a number of visits over several weeks. Usually busy with possible shortage of seating at times, which is a good sign. A young, slightly out there staff were always friendly and chatty. Lattes were generally very good and nicely presented, our snack lunch...was fresh and reasonably priced. Light background music, most people just chatting with friends or using tablets. Some interesting framed wall art of patrons and cafe related theme. A nice ambience and a place to chill.More

This small coffee shop is great for sitting down for a conversation with a friend. Nice snacks to go along with excellent coffee.

Hi there, thanks for sharing your experience. We serve a traditional cappuccino with a double ristretto shot of espresso which can come across too strong if you're not used to it. Our espresso blend is crafted to have notes of bitter dark chocolate and bright...More
