    My favorite aspect of this place is their outdoor seating and atmosphere. It's a really good spot to study or just people-watch. They also have good slices of cake and make a nice iced white mocha!

    If you sit down inside, the brown chairs will give you a bumpy ride as the people behind you sit down and get up. Slow Internet but the smell of coffee is amazing and it's open until midnight!

    Go to Cafe Strada, sit outside, have a drink, and go online. Convert your student email address to a free forwarding address. Go to @cal http://cal.berkeley.edu. Use your CalNet login. It's easy!

    One of the best coffee shops near campus. The vanilla latte will always please. They usually have live music on Sundays. Coffee+Sun+Music makes studying a bit easier.

    If you like iced vanilla lattes, get an iced coffee with vanilla instead! A dollar cheaper!

    A popular place to study. Can get crowded and cold. They don't take card, so bring cash. The ATM there charges $3 and banks are a walk away.

    This's the sole great atmosphere that I could find to sit outside under the shadow during sunny days in Berkeley. The patio has heaters which is also great in chili weathers. By the way, only cash!

    Their large latte is huge. But the regular latte only has one shot. Go for the regular with the extra shot. The large is intimidating.

    The ATM they have is Eco friendly and only charges $1.25 to withdraw! Way better than the other ATMs in the area.
