I've been trying to hunt down a good place to sit, relax, and enjoy several cups of espresso while reading. The key is somewhere that has cushioned comfortable chairs. I'd prefer somewhere fairly quiet, decent coffee, maybe something to nibble. The place I go to that most fits this is Cole Coffee on College Avenue in Berkeley, but they really only have a couple arm chairs (like you'd have in your living room) so they are usually occupied. Some of the Peet's in the Bay Area have some cushioned bench seating, but I'd love to find seating I can really sink in to.
I would appreciate any suggestions anyone has of a place that would fit this description, preferably in SF or the east bay...but I'd venture out farther for a great spot. Thanks.
