2009 BEST OF SILICON VALLEY Reader Survey Winner - First Place

Best Local Coffeehouse

It's hard to imagine Los Gatos without this place. Among the many reasons: 27 years in business as one of the first companies to pioneer specialty coffees. The central location itself is more than picturesque, a fine old brick building following the downward curve of a hill. The cafe is really on three levels: (1.) a cafe Americano and ice cream bar on the lower level glad to see coffee served in mugs instead in flimsy paper cups or in pint glasses with cardboard gaskets; (2.) the clublike main cafe with mirrors, ceiling fans and sturdy marble tables is roomy and yet intimate, and cool on blistering days; (3.) up a few steps is a gourmet section where whole beans are sold, and a deli/charcuterie makes everything from Black Forest ham to gourmet pain de mie and cheese sandwiches.

Best Local Coffeehouse

Aside from being a Mecca for bikers clad in spandex, this old standby pours a pretty decent cup of coffee. Try the organically grown Ethiopian Harrar coffee or Ethiopian Yrgacheffe coffee. A true neighborhood spot.
