Cafe Verde is one of my favorite cafes. We are regulars there for Saturday lunch after Farmer's Market. It's attached to and run by the People's Food Coop.
Cafe Verde is newly renovated with a brand new beautiful wood floor and new tables to sit at. The seating along the side is a long bench with tables and chairs, very nice to have a sense that you are feeling like you're part of a group of folks all together rather than off in your own little isolated table. It does get pretty crowded on Saturday mornings, but the day I wrote this (a Tuesday) before lunch there's plenty of seats.
The hot bar always has soup, rice, greens, beans, and chicken, and has a rotating schedule of other featured dishes for each day of the month. The food is well prepared, delicious, and quite reasonable. I can generally get a plate for $5-$6 that fills me up.
The coffee bar in the front features all fair trade coffee. My recommendation is to go with the brewed coffee and not the espresso drinks. The organic half and half they have for the coffee is really, really good.
There's a good selection of pastries in the front cases, or you can go to the back bakery section and pick up a single cookie from Avalon Bakery for $0.75. That case always has vegan cookies available.
The wifi is free - there's a page on Plazes which has the details.
