The food and coffee is good. They have free WiFi just ask the server. There are some outlets along the wall, but if you get a bad seat it's not the best place to be. I would go there and work of your in the area. But it's not worth a whole trip

*Almost* perfect. I just discovered this place today, had good coffee, then a very tasty lunch. Employees were quite friendly. Bright cheerful atmosphere. I keep looking for a coffee shop that I can walk to and really spend time in, and this could be it EXCEPT... ...they appear to have only one big speaker, and they set it at the front of the store, playing VERY LOUD. When I first came in, I was surprised to see that the big comfy chairs up front were unoccupied. Sat in one for about 15 minutes and realized why -- music blasting in my face so loud I could not hear myself think! Moved to an open spot near the middle of the shop and was better. When I ordered lunch, then I could move to one of the "reserved for eating people" tables, as far away from the speaker as possible. THEN the music was a reasonable level. I note that the register is back there -- I guess the employees are making the music the volume they like for themselves, and maybe they don't realize that when they do that, and the speaker is at the complete opposite end of the shop, anyone near that speaker is just being blasted out. If that weren't going on, I probably would've stayed the rest of the afternoon, gotten more coffee, had some pastries... but I had to leave after lunch; since relinquishing my diners-only table would've meant moving back toward the speaker. So I guess I continue to search for a good hang-out coffee shop... it makes me sad; this place is otherwise so great. Maybe I'll try ear plugs...sigh...

Hi Elizabeth, my name is Jack and my business partner's name is Coleman. Thank you for our four star review. I was out running errands today and am sorry I missed you. I'm sure I would have found the music too loud if I were there. I have the greatest staff at Mjack and am proud of all of them. Sometimes they raise the volume to meet the crowd volume, then when we're a little calmer the music volume is still up. For whatever reason it is not the norm and my staff will be happy to be more acute on the music being background only. Please come join us again. we have a great client all of professionals and the vibe is good. I'm sure we can all win you over. We are a neighborhood coffee house and we are proud of how our neighborhood has grown. Best, Jack Petronella co owner

This was my experience here. I came here to get something really important online done that I only had 2 hours to get done. It takes 1.5 hours to do it. I get to this place, pay $34 for two breakfast sandwiches and a coffee only to hear that the Wifi isn't allowed until 1pm. Insert expletive here.

Good service. Love the Pretzel Bagel sandwich and all the pastries look wonderful. If you're there on non-peak hours it's a great place to get some work done and sip good coffee. Wi-Fi is restricted on peak hours.

I've become quite the coffee snob since college. Just happened upon this place while visiting New Orleans. And I'm glad I did. This place made one of the best coffees I've had. Definitely will stop by this place again next time I'm in the area.
