Great place to get work done – If you ever want to sit and write or work on your college thesis, Swork is the place - if you can wrest a table from one of the many other people doing the same thing.

Great coffee and friendly staff is a bonus. Way better than going to Star**cks.

Citysearch Editorial Review – Eagle Rock's neighborhood coffee house manages to be both kid friendly and a good place to get some work done (Facebook!). Sleek, blonde wood accents and vaguely Scandinavian lingo call to mind Ikea, but the exposed brick walls and pop art lend a more eclectic vibe. Settle into one of many two-tops, snag a cushioned bench seat by the sunny front window or escape the bustle for a sidewalk table outside. Forgot your laptop? Hop online at one of the cyber cafe-style computer kiosks. Kids in tow? Dump them off at the adorable Sworkland play area while you indulge in a Mexican Mayan mocha. On the menu, you'll also find organic, fair trade, loose-leaf teas and deluxe drinks spiked with vanilla, caramel, chocolate and more. The wee ones get their own menu, with cute options like Raspberry Princess Potion, Mint Chocolate Dinosaur and Vanilla Bunny Boo. If you're feeling slightly less indulgent, there are plenty of muffins and scones.

A Work-Friendly Coffee Shop – Swork is actually a pretty good place to work from. The place has tons of table space and, if there's not a table available, there are benches (complete with comfy red cushions!) to sit on. Swork has free wifi, but access codes are only distributed with a purchase (they print it on the receipt itself). Also, because of the free wifi, the place gets crowded really easily. However, once it gets late and the place clears out a little bit, it's a pretty nice place to just lounge and type away.

Great neighborhood coffee shop – Swork has great coffee and pastries. It's such a convenient little neighborhood place. I like walking to the cool stores around the area after my morning cup of coffee.

Modern Design – I really liked this place. I thought the kids' area was very creative although I don't have any kids. I haven't been to a coffeeshop that has a play area for them.I had a small vanilla bean milkshake which was really good and so was the lemon bar. I didn't look at prices but was pretty surprised when it came out to be a little over $7. I liked the atmosphere and the vibe. I went Sunday, so parking wasn't an issue but take your quarters for the meters any other day.

Great espresso, Great atmosphere. – Even though there's a starbucks with a big parking lot right across a street, I still go to Swork. I love their espresso, music, and atmosphere. Also, it's good to try their outside seats in the back sometimes. It gives me some quiet and nice coffee time!

Their Iced Raspberry Earl Grey Tea Rocks My World! – It's where I go to get my work done. The lighting's good, it's not too loud (away from the kiddies in back), and the crowd is comfortable. And have I mentioned the iced raspberry earl grey tea?

terrible drinks. good pastries. pretty place. – this place is a nice place to just hang out, because it looks so modern and new. they also have internet. but, the drinks arent very good. the pastries are pretty tasty though. they're also a little play area for little kids.

Internet, Coffee, Couches – While this place may be more "urban chic" than its progressively hipster locale, the quality coffee, ample couch space, and Wi-Fi make it a winner. I did order a pound of coffee there last week, however, and when I asked the woman to grind it for a french press (coarser grind), she handed me a bag of coffee shavings, way too thick to really extract flavor.
