This coffee house on Alameda's downtown strip (Park) is a fantastic little spot. It's in a historical building with big windows and a cozy interior. They have a great selection of teas as well as coffee and nice pastries if you need a little nosh with your beverage. (I've been known to have the carrot cake for breakfast. Who can't use a little cream cheese frosting in the morning?)
As an added bonus, the staff are friendly and chatty and not the too-cool-to-wait-on-you counter folks and baristas that can be found at other independent coffee houses.
Oh, and there's internet access if you need that too.
