    That's a hell of a lot of questions to answer before finding a cafe

    This would be infinitely more better if there was just a map view with some filters.

    Also, it annoys the hell out of me that I have to click to get a dropdown. It would be so easy to show the options inline and just click them to select.

    So nope, too much style and not enough substance :(

    I've seen a few of these types of websites - the question format can be quite useful and intuitive. In this case it seems like a tad style over substance.

    Also, they usually give me a breakdown as to why I'm being suggested these places. I'd be more interested in why being 'sullen' points me to a certain venue. Iconography or imagery would certainly make this more enjoyable.

    Hey everyone! This is a site that I made about a year ago as I wanted a fun way to learn a little bit more javascript, and I like giving people coffee recommendations. Totally understood that it's not a fully comprehensive site a la Yelp to get a wide spectrum of results.

    A few of the cafes included in the results actually have since closed down, so the site's in need of a bit of upkeep as it is. I appreciate the feedback here - always nice to learn how a project could be more usable and useful to people. Thanks!

    It's fun. It's a frivolous tool that may help you find a new cafe you didn't know about, yet which satisfies some sensible criteria.

    Made me smile (on what is a truly sad day for us here in the UK).

    I don't really like it and here is why: 1. it's not intuitive that by clicking on "Find your coffee spot >" the page auto-scrolls down because... 2. ... when I scroll down I only find "I'm feeling ________ "and SOOOO MUCH blank space. That's what happen on my second monitor: https://postimg.org/image/ogznzcrgx/ I think that you should do something to not let me feel so lost 3. Let's think about why I'm on your website: I'm looking for a coffee and personally, I won't drive around the city to find a hypothetical best coffee for me just because I answered 4 questions on a website. When I'm looking for a coffee shop I search first for something around me (I'm in Milano, Italy, don't know how big is SF and how is easy to move around the city but when I was in LA it was a nightmare) and then for something with a high rating. I think that your questions are correct but what happen if I find the perfect spot for me, I click on VIEW MAP and what I find is this https://postimg.org/image/xxoyz0s5j/ ? I think that first you should ask the user where is he or asking to geolocalize her and then start asking questions.

    That's just what I think so feel free to say that are all bullshit. (Now I need a coffee)
