WiFi: Beaner’s at 28th and Breton

It was more work cycling out to Beaner’s than I’d been expecting, but I’m sure the exercise did me good. I was here for a meeting with Joel about a project we’re working on (on which more later).

Wireless access seems pretty good, even when a guy across the room fired up some peer-to-peer software, though mid-afternoon it did slow down considerably. It seems to be one of the more popular hotspots locally with about half a dozen users at any one time, but even when it is slow the connection seems reliable. I enjoyed my coffee, but wouldn’t recommend the club bagel which seemed a little ‘plastic’. Maybe I need to be less demanding about cheeses?

The piped jazz works for a while, but I’m glad of headphones, and there isn’t the communal atmosphere of some of the downtown/eastown coffee shops. But if you’re on this side of town, Beaner’s isn’t a bad place to check out.
