WHY A relaxed vibe, very good brewed coffee (lattes and cappuccinos are unexceptional), pastries from Rossmoor Bakery and free WiFi.
WHAT Two airy, modern rooms and some sidewalk tables provide lots of space for the regulars to hang out, but even then, it can get full, especially in the evening. Improv and standup comedy are extras.
WHO An interesting mix of beach people, gay neighbors and the laptop-obsessed.
