    Lots of comfy, classy seating and wifi. Great new addition to the neighborhood. Coffee and pastries good. Not as good as the fancy cafés in the hood, but good enough. My new go-to work cafe.

    I love the details in here! From the stand-up record players and parking meter lamps to the font waste receptacle and vintage movie theatre seats...I foresee many hours of writing my play here 🔮✒️📓

    A great spot to watch some experimental comedy or poetry readings each night, plus they serve wine, beer, tea, and coffee, so you're covered no matter what mood you're in.

    2003 was a great year! If you liked it as much as I did, you can teleport back to it at Black Cat Cafe.

    Essentially your public living room. There's comedy, board games, & movies. Wine and beer are also served!

    This place has the best decaf in the city. Their (non-decaf) Americanos are probably some of the best I've had. The sandwiches are delish too -- get one on ciabatta.

    By far the fastest wifi in the hood. I'm getting 58Mbps Down. Password is "yellowcat" as of January 2017

    great little spot, perfect for working or studying. and they offer almond milk as a dairy-free and soy-free alternative.

    not the trendiest of places, but a cozy spot to settle in with free wi-fi. the owner is an italian sweetheart and don't miss the davidovich bagels. 👍

    The black iced tea and the iced chai are both excellent. A cozy spot to chill in the afternoons.

    The Buddha bagel is a decent vegan meal. There's also a good vegan salad here.

    Coffee is good, relatively cheap, and the atmosphere is good (although a bit too warm at times).

    The price point of the cappuccino was a bit high for the small amount I received - nice atmosphere though - maybe they messed up my order - overall, wasn't worth the trip

    A casual and relatively spacious place to sit and use the wifi. The coffee itself is probably a bit below average for the area
