Starbucks Cook St Village

No. 14

<2010-06-03 Thu> Three large coffee shops in an 3 block area, and all

uniform. It is a large space, its tables are very comfortable, and
because it controls the Internet access via a username, it provides
the best public bandwidth in town, but only for 2 hrs every
24hrs. Regarding the tables/chairs: they are just the perfect high to
work with a laptop, and the size is just right if you don't have to
have open books and a computer, otherwise it might feel crowded.

Finally, one of the few coffee shops that opens late every day (in

coffee shops. Quite dramatic.

Internet: Yes, limited to two hours, and requires registration.

Verdict: Recommended for the area (average coffee, but great place to
