I found a great coffee house with perfect chai in Colfax, right on highway 80 in between SF and Tahoe. I know this should technically go on the California board, but I wanted to alert all the SF Bay Area ski crowd to the this place, I hope the chowhound team agrees.

I had: a perfect chai latte. The best I've had outside my own home. And a sandwich for breakfast, I'm not an egg person.
The other adult had:
great coffee (organic to boot), free refill. A fresh bagel toasted with the right amount of cream cheese.
The kids had:
hot cocoa with whipped cream and marshmallows, and bagels too. AND they got to sit at their own table with overstuffed chairs. Checkers and chess available.
This is in an older building with high ceilings, it's a beautiful space. Rotating art displays, right now an incredible quilt display by a local artist that goes until Feb. 25th.
This place is worth the stop!
