This is a great place to hang-out with friends, do email/work, or just enjoy the coffee. It's located in downtown San Mateo, CA just steps from the train station. Worth a stop while in the peninsula, bay area, CA.

Visited for the first time, coffee is great and they do know how to brew it and serve it properly. Nice blends as well, definitely worth visiting but better not when you are in a hurry

Lots of space, tables and chairs to hang out and socialize or to work (one table at least had a power strip for chargers). The baristas are into doing their thing properly -- so don't be in a hurry.

We came here quite a few times. The coffee is always great as it is made individually by the cup from your coffee bean selection. But sometime the line is just too long and we have to skip the visit.

If you are in a rush, this is not for you. Brewster take his time to make sure you have exactly what you wanted. The verities are incredible. Commuters in a rush to catch the train (Caltrain) find the coffee well worth the wait. There...More
