Their sandwiches are quite good. Surprised you have to pay again for ice tea refill. Other places do this gratis. Non the less, it is pleasant especially outside when wether permits. Noise level can be high when crowded. I like this place

It's both the large and small things that count. Large things: my son suggested I order the tunasandwich. I followed his advice amd had the tuna melt. the portion of tuna was certainly on the large size. I knew I wouldn't eat any more food until a late dinner. Small things: the square of paper between the toasted sandwich and... More

This coffee shop serves Illy coffee, an Italian brand. I think it's terrific coffee and the barista's make a very delicious latte or cappuccino....much better than other coffee shops in town. They also make sandwiches and have snacks and pastries available all day. Friendly owner who is on site most of the time and they are usually very busy. Located... More

Situated just under the Orinda library this is a great little place for a cup of coffee or a nice snack. I recommend the bagel sandwiches. A great wee stop to unwind.

My kids and I love this little cafe. They make delicious sandwiches and serve lots of yummy treats. The service is always friendly and quick. This is our favorite place for a lunch out in Orinda.

The baristas make excellent coffee drinks and are always friendly and pleasant. Their bagels are good, too, and they have a nice variety of cakes and cookies. They do serve sanwiches, too, but I've never tried them.

My wife and kids visit this cafe after their weekly trips to the Library. Service with a smile and tastey, fresh food & drinks.

Great coffee, free wireless, Orinda Library is upstairs. A favorite work away from home spot, meeting place. Also nice outdoor seating but the sun makes the computer screen a little hard to read - not a lot of shade unless you're lucky enough to score an umbrella. They used to be by the Orinda Theater, hence somewhat curious name. Only... More
