Energetic and fun, King State is the place you go to get refueled. A former gas station/garage turned Coffee Shop and Restaurant, King State’s natural lighting and eclectic playlist keep you energized and productive throughout your stay. While the setup is more in line with traditional restaurant seating, there is a bar and plenty of spaces to settle in for the long haul to work on your next project. When it comes to food, the turkey sandwich and the pulled pork sandwich are out of this world, combining traditional and non-traditional flavors to pack a powerful punch to your taste buds. However, you can’t talk about King State without bringing up their cold brew, which might just be the best in the Bay. It. Is. Incredible.
