    Very cozy coffee shop on downtown Mountain View. It is a non-profit establishment and the atmosphere is very chill and relaxed. Many students are here in their laptops. Great lace to meet up with friends abs study and work. They also play live music in the evenings. The Iced Maple Latte is wonderful!

    I take Caltrain every morning from Mountain View, but haven't had a chance to stop by till now. They serve Four Barrel!!!!!! I love getting my FB in SF. The latte I got was delicious.

    There are a couple of spots to sit on the first floor and some sofa seats with coffee tables. The upstairs is where most of the tables are. There were a ton of people here, even on a Sunday afternoon. We didn't find a table, so we went back dow stairs and checked for a table outside and got lucky. This is a popular spot among students and folks working, so finding space can be difficult. It's a great cafe though with great service (the batistas are fast) :)

    I write this review as someone that has seen Mountain View from its humble beginnings, before LinkedIn and even before Google. Red rock represents both the Mountain View that I grew up in and the city that it has become - it supports both community and the entrepreneurial spirit that is the heart of the Silicon Valley.

    What to Get Here:
    A Job
    New Ideas
    Cappuccino (2.90)
    Latte (3.50)

    Red Rock has seating both upstairs and downstairs. The space upstairs creates a haven for those who treat cafes as their home offices. Interestingly enough, because of the ample amount of tables, power outlets, and fast internet, it has become the ad hoc conference room for many startups and a place to conduct interviews.

    Being in this space is as inspiring as it is productive (and serves good cappuccinos and lattes to boot!).

    Mmm. Coffee. Even with two stories, this place gets packed. Yet, people like to come and work here (and yes, it's a bit of a cool place for that); they appear productive, though I'm not sure how much work you can actually get done with so much traffic rolling through, especially on the first floor. They run heavy on staffing (probably the most number of baristas I've ever seen at a coffee shop during a single shift), but that's how busy they get! Yeah, there's a bit of a line, but it moves swiftly.

    I thought Red Rock was a pretty nice cafe. Could use a better interior though as it felt just kind of awkward being two stories. Can use better seats inside. Great coffee though.

    Not really a coffee drinker, but I enjoy sitting in coffee places with friends, this place is not really the best for that either, too crowded for my taste.

    COFFEE!!!

    After dinner coffee sounded like such a great idea. I ended up drinking decaf. Yes, I said decaf! The antioxidant level is unfettered by the lack of caffeine. The swiss decaf wasn't all that bad though I should probably try the other one next time. With that being said, I now drink it straight up... no milk... no sugar... all black. It's growing on me. It's also nice to have a 2nd floor available to us.

    On another note, something about the red decor just screams out too me... very warming and comforting...
    just saying
    ;D

    The place to come if you want to see a sea of Macbooks and study/have a business meeting.
