    Have the decently sized, delicious Croque Madame and a double latte, drop the buck 25 out of $15 in the tip jar, and grab the cinzano table outside. You wont regret it.

    A nice alternative to running into Starbucks, Pete's or even Philz. Can't go wrong with the pastries, sweet or savory.

    Pastries are heavenly, but get your coffee from peets around the corner. Much better.

    Watch out for bitchy grannies who slam their chair into your arm and then give you dirty looks when you ask them to move.
