The Musical Offering does not deliver all to be desired; but, hey, America is a commercial republic. It will do (full of semicolon-happy writers). Every trip down from the Sierra I go there first for an hour. The coffeehouse is a second womb to me--sheltered by barrier walls, safe in my spot within a fluid sphere of indistinct and softly pulsing ambient sound.

This place is SO CUTE! They have a really nice selection of food and drinks, and some really yummy sweet treats. The coffee is amazing. The service is really warm and welcoming, and since it is a musical themed cafe they have so much cool stuff around the place, like records and really unique pieces of art and history. Sometimes they even have live music! It is a quintessential college town cafe and it is a crucial fixture in Berkeley arts culture. I love this place and I full review

My roommate and I used to come here sometimes on Fridays as a treat, so this sweet and small cafe holds a special place in my heart! The hot chocolate and coffee options are delicious and the pastries are phenomenal. The folks working there have always been gracious and kind. I'll be back soon!!
