coffee shops--oakland

novella | Mar 10, 200303:12 AM

hello, do you frequent cafes? i'm from seattle and i'm looking for my type of coffeeshop here in oakland--couches, cool music, strong coffee--but it's hard to find.
don't say peet's. it's good coffee but doesn't have the right hang out for hours kind of vibe.
i went to jahva around lake merritt and it was good, nice vibe, couches, but of course they played reggae the whole time i was there. i don't mind reggae but not that much at one time. suggestions? what's mama buzz like? for some reason i feel intimidated to go in there (is it the bars on the doors?)
thanks!
