The Baristas are always welcoming and helpful.'Dual' is one of the baristas there who is always open for a good conversation and has a very positive attitude. I enjoy ordering the hot/cold Soy Chai with a Biscotti or pastry. They have a good Wi-fi for your digital devices, and a large screen tv for all those big sporting events. There... More

Comfy, quiet and tasty - nice sofas and chairs - a great place to come when you want to work for a few hours. The coffee isn't bad either.

Located at the lovely Murphy st this place was packed by locals on a Sunday morning. The coffee was excellent, the sandwich was good and the service was very friendly. Excellent value for a breakfast.

The fellow behind the counter was unfriendly, no return smile or “you’re welcome” for a thank you. He did make a very good strong cappuccino but that’s it. My omelet was well below average.... More

This is must visit coffee shop on Murphy Avenue. Great cappuccino's. Also serve savory and sweet food - my favorite is their cheese and ham quiche. Plenty of seating indoors and patio. Free WiFi.

Myy friend and I were searching for a coffee spot and unlike her I can't tolerate the computer labs. THis plase is so different and cozy and the wait staff are very nice and the breakfast is divine.

Outdoor tables in the shade, easy to hang out & talk. Had a great fruit smoothie blended with ice cream, perfect for a hot day, especially since I didn't want more coffee. Excellent coffee selection. Located in the cute Murphy's area of Sunnyvale.

Espresso machiato and green tea were what we tried and they were very good! We sipped our drinks as we strolled around the avenue.

Had breakfast over the weekend prior to hitting the Farmers Market. The food was nice and fresh and the coffee was great. You can tell this is a place that has a lot of regulars that like to hang out and enjoy their coffee. The staff was great and a pleasure to chat with.
