This place is the only good coffee shop near my house. Unlike the rest of the neighborhood which is gentrifying it's getting more ghetto. The bathroom is always gross and they're almost always out of stuff on the menu. But it's the best coffee shop in the area and has blindingly fast internet. Fingers crossed they clean up the place a bit.
Big-Chain Prices for a small cafe... – There really isn't anywhere to go for an Americano if you live in Fruitvale or the Laurel. There is Powderface by BART, but I was heading in the other direction, so I thought I'd try out World Ground.
The good; They have wifi, espresso drinks, breakfast sandwiches, friendly staff
The not great: My Americano tasted burnt and cost $2.05 for a single before tax, and a bagel with cream cheese was almost $3. The sandwiches looked reasonable pricewise, but the breakfast sandwiches were all over $5 with meat, and the bagels themselves were bready, and not worth the high cafe prices. Also, there were 3 staff working, and the line was not long, but it took several minutes to get to every customer - as if they were overwhelmed.
I have read other reviews that talked about their nice back patio. When I went all the way back, however, I found a strange back room that was part storage/part dining area, and a door that said "To remain closed during business hours." There was no access to the patio, though it was a nice day.
I will come back when I need coffee in this direction, but will not go out of my way.
