Need some fuel after a late-morning jog or early-afternoon stroll around Lake Merritt? How about a place to set up your laptop alongside other young hipsters at night? This neat neighborhood newcomer, where sparsely decorated walls set an understated slightly anonymous but friendly-enough tone, has just the thing: coffee, chai, sweet treats, savory snacks, breakfast offerings and sandwiches plus free Wi-Fi. It’s simple, straightforward, mostly surprise-free repast, sustenance delivered in an inviting space with a decent vibe. There’s a modern orange couch for chillin’ and lots of tables and bars for cafe-goers pondering life and the day’s agenda. On a sunny day, plop down at an outside table for a bird’s-eye view of the lakeside activity. Serves daily until 9 p.m.
