Comfy place to read and relax May 09, 2011
I come by here every now and again to enjoy the couches...decent coffee drinks, and prices not too bad. Tucked away from the noise of the beach, close to the meditation center. If you are sick of cookie-cutter coffee shops, please check it out.

Casual and interesting coffee shop in the South Bay. If you are tired of the trendy yet featureless interiors of Starbucks, check this place out and relax in one of the numerous comfy couches and sofas. Bookcases, paintings, photographs, and fishtanks line the brick interior, giving this place a distinctive, homey, and welcoming feel.

The cappucinos here are strong, tasty, and addictive. They are stronger than Starbucks and comparable to Peet's, but not as bitter. There is also a wide assortment of muffins, scones, and other fattening delights to whet your appetite. The staff is warm and friendly.

There is also free wireless, but it can be a bit flaky at times. Still, this place is laptop friendly, and there are multiple outlets and surge protectors. I work from here occasionally so if you have any suggestions for the site and are in the area drop by and say hi :)

One disadvantage of this place is that often there are local musicians who perform here at night, and the music could often be better. It can be annoying if you are trying to hold a conversation with friends or relax and read a book.

I grew up in San Pedro, just a few miiles away, but I'm sure this place was not there at that time. Kevnw83 must be from San Francisco, where they do not recognize the South Bay area of So. Cal.

First of all, South Bay is in Norcal, not Socal. You must be going delirious from caffeine overloads.
