Review Summary:

If you're not a coffee drinker, this spot provides plenty of other dining options to eat while you work. Free Wi-Fi and clean restrooms are two main pros, but don't count on finding a place to recharge your devices. 
 

Pluses:

  • Lots of light with windows along front and side of the corner space
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Remote worker friendly though we noticed very few people actually working there
  • Outdoor tables and comfortable seating are shaded in the morning which was a pleasant experience on another day that Susan worked here
  • Bar seating toward the back with outlets and hooks for bags (but the music is loud in the back)
  • Corner nook facing XO Espresso with lawn furniture is out of the way of foot traffic; we worked quietly there.
  • Restrooms locked and accessed via keypad; clean and cheerful
 

Minuses:

  • Tables in the center are for eating and it can get noisy (but it’s a food hall!)
  • It’s a food hall!
  • Outlets are not plentiful, only along one bar
  • Music loud in the back near the only electrical outlets


Coffee:

Susan (skim latte): Okay, a little bitter but it is strong (a plus). Extra bonus points: They have an excellent, incredibly buttery croissant.
 
Michael (regular coffee): I like the coffee!
