I Like this place. Sandwiches are good employees friendly. But.... Fresh orange juice machine is ALwAYS broken (annoying) and worse... They charge 10% service charge but this is not given to the employees but taken by the owners. I hate that!!!!

Good coffee and wi fi. Get a Brie and Serrano ham on French bragette bread, just great. This is a little pricey but worth it

For pastries and croissants, you've got to go here. It's on our list every visit. Go early, or they may be out of their best.

Sorry, but I don't know. Saw several using tablets/laptops, but don't know if they were connected to wifi. We just enjoyed the food.
