I stopped by Full of Beans Coffee House & Roastery last year for the previous Indie Coffee Passport. I remembered I wasn't able to use the outlets, even though there was Wi-Fi available. That is still the case today. This is a great location to sit and get work done, however, warning for those planning to bring their laptops: bring a fully charged one.

I came in around 4 PM for my second visit and it was quite empty, with no more than two to three customers every hour aside from myself. Before I sat down to start studying, I got to speak with Lori, the owner of the cafe. She recognized me as one of the cafe's Facebook fans! It is always so nice to be recognized, haha (the power of Facebook!).

Everything sold on the menu is made in-house, including the pate spread (I don't know about you, but I love pate!). They roast their coffee beans everyday as well. The cafe hosts open mic every Saturday night and some live music on the weekends. Live music doesn't happen consistently every weekend, but would be booked randomly from time to time. Another event called the Brockton Series happens on the first Wednesday of every two months (next one happening on March 6th!). This is a writer series in which readings are done by published or ready-to-be published authors. Going on with the book theme, the cafe also has a take-a-book-leave-a-book corner. Artwork by local artists are sold and changed every month.

All in all, this is one of the locations I would recommend for those who would like some quiet time to get work done (when the cafe is not hosting during the weekends). It has an overall nice atmosphere and comfortable setting.
