Coffee time is all the time – discover your new local caffeine fix! Here are our favorites in Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin and Danville.
This locally-owned, independent artisanal coffee company makes all of their syrups in-house and serves their drinks in porcelain cups to enhance the flavors. For those on the go, there are double-walled porcelain travel mugs for purchase. Loose leaf tea from Blue Willow, a local tea company, is also available. We recommend ordering the Nicco Macchiato Truffle (an intriguing blend of orange, cinnamon and vanilla) and taking a theater seat (reclaimed from an old theater in Berkeley) for a unique experience. espressorosetta.com
Get your cameras ready, because the coffee drinks and food here as gorgeous as they are tasty. Make sure to grab a cup of locally-roasted McLaughlin Coffee and an order of their toastinis or homemade marshmallows! Don’t be fooled by their strip mall location, once you’re there you’ll find a mixed crowd of young professionals, students and families forming a line out the door. thepressartisancafe.com
The coffee service here begins with a selection of beans sourced from artisans’ hand roasting in small batches. Snag a seat at one of the vintage tables, whip out your laptop and get some work done. If you work into the night, don’t worry – there are blankets available for use, and you can order a delicious dinner. itsonthesideboard.com
