Great coffee and espresso; fresh cafe fare as in sandwiches and salads, sweets and savories; and crowds galore in a friendly space. That about sums up this well-established cafe-coffeehouse, which prides itself as San Leandro’s “living room,” on most weekend morning and afternoons; by night, it can be a makeshift community center for lovers of literature, music, movie, games, trivia, and simply hanging out. It’s spacious with high ceilings and has communal and solitary tables, perfect for gaggles of studying law students, athletes catching up after a morning gym workout, or errand-runners needing a quick pick-me-up at midday. Try a hearty, cheesy breakfast sandwich or a big Bancroft biscuit, build a toothsome sandwich of your own, or get some greenery going. Whatever you order, it comes with a heaping helping of community, San Leandro style. Serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
