I love this place, especially since it's supporting a great cause. Nothing like Starbucks. I tried the ice coffee. Oh my gosh. It was amazing! They simmer the coffee with honey before cooling it. Best iced coffee!

It's Bohemian at best. There are dress codes, but the signage on the door might read more eloquently, such as "shirts required" rather than nipples covered. I stopped in for a water and left as soon as possible. There is a very young crowd, tourists...More

This place has a truly unique atmosphere. I strongly recommend checking it out. They've got it all, from coffee to snacks, cold beverages, soups, and impromptu live music. A breading ground for interesting debates and series of hosted talks about a wide range of topics.

Great place. Someone was painting in the corner and someone else was getting out his sketch pad. A modest list of "needed donations" was on the wall. Full of heart with a noble mission.

one cold, windy day we took refuge at the Boiler Room and had a bowl of soup. The co-operative- style management/ workforce is great and most folks there are very laid-back. Good work, Boiler Room!!
