4/5 stars

To borrow local Atlanta celebrity David K's phrase, "Nice People Work Here." And they make good coffee with good foam art.

About ten years ago, I had to chose between Hudson Bay and Mocha Lisa for typical coffee stops. Mocha Lisa won by a slightly fresher, more fun environment… Mocha Lisa's gone, and Hudson Bay definitely stepped up in that time. It had been at least five years since my last visit. (Father, I have sinned… Oh, wait, that's the coffee shop review I just posted, not this one.) Peppier, brighter, and more fun. I likely would come back here often if I still were in Berkeley. The folks working that night boosted my impression even more. Delightful.

Plentiful enough outlets, and a sensible purchase-each-hour-or-so policy for network usage.
