I have searched through the boards looking for tips on coffee drinks, and although there are some discussions on the best beans, there appears to be little commentary on favorite cafe's to go to when you need to feed the caffeine need.
Where do you go when you want to get your favorite latte? Espresso? Brewed coffee? I know that there are rabid peet's, royal, etc., fans everywhere, and that the quality of coffee drinks can vary from barista to barista...are there any places that are consistent in their quality that you do not sway from? My current favorite for latte's is the torrefazione on union in sf and I stop in for brewed coffee at royal when I am in berkeley. I am looking for some new places in sf and the east bay to check out for great coffee and it would help if the location was laptop/work friendly...any ideas?
