    Modern caters meetings!! We used them twice last week for an important conference, and the food was amazing. Definitely the quiche is a win. Of course, the coffee was great, too! -- Glen Cantrell via Foursquare

    No dairy! I was given a choice of almond or soy milk for my latte- my almond milk latte was amazing! Every other coffee shop on Piedmont offers dairy, so it wasn't missed. The coffee is great. -- Kat Gaines via Foursquare

    Feel a little scandalous coming here with indy Cole Coffee just across the street, but I love the Turkish here. -- Brian Strauss via Foursquare

    Not known by many students, nor is it used as a study place because it's so far away from campus. But that makes it great because there are few people and a nice atmosphere. And chocolate of course. -- Jill via Foursquare

    Love Underwood for work + a drink. Tables inside usually taken, but bar stools by window, kitchen have outlets, yay. Outside patio is spacious but sunny with only ~2 umbrellas. Awesome staff. -- John W via Foursquare

    Seriously one of the best cafes in the Bay Area, especially for working. Delicious coffees, free wifi and ample plugs. They carry a stellar selection of beans, at a premium. Drinks are priced well. -- Ben Bergstein via Foursquare

    Good location, colorful crowd, tasty sandwiches and open late. What's not to like? Big tables are good for sharing so don't bother stuffing yourself into one of those little penalty desks by the door. -- Alex Martin via Foursquare

    $2 Strawberry mimosas, made with fresh strawberries, how can you go wrong? And raspberry-filled French toast - yum! -- Paula Wirth / Eat Drink Oakland via Foursquare

    If you sit at the high bar in the balcony, don't drop your knife accidentally. Aftermath between the trajectory of object, gravitational pull & coffee at the bottom could be hazardous. -- Kensie Smith via Foursquare

    While Philz, Peet's, and Starbucks have all declared war on Coles, the strong local following, poached eggs on toast, and great outdoor seating will hopefully keep this independent shop afloat. -- Brian Strauss via Foursquare

    Solid espresso drinks from laidback baristas, with a chill ambiance for meeting or working on wifi. The prepared food and baked goods looked tasty. Next time I'm in the area, I'll be going Farley's. -- Luke Bornheimer via Foursquare
