nicely made cappuccino with a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie held me over until dinner. after my meeting, I went back for an espresso but that was undrinkable, ugh. at least the cookie was really good.

When you find a place where you can walk in alone or with friends or family and you always feel welcome… you know you are home. Great beer… and food and catch a night of music when you can.

Aqus Cafe has outdoor as well as indoor seating. They have excellent local bands and solo musicians some evenings. The coffee (medium and light roast) is roasted by Aqus. The salads are good but table service is slow. They have language speaking clubs meet there on the 3rd Monday evening of the month. This is a community gathering place.

After walking in and out of a few places down town, we decided to give this place a try. The menu is full of local flavor from the bread to the bacon. I am a sour dough bread snob and this was the best I had on my entire trip to northern California. The breakfast sandwiches were on point and... More

If you're in the mood to sit outside and enjoy some h'orderves and have a glass of wine....with your dog...here's your spot. Lots of people bring their dogs and while it's nice...some people tie them up and go inside and the dogs get anxious....hence start barking. I saw one woman enjoying her meal inside while the dog yapped outside and... More

You can find just about anything to feed the belly or soul at this sweet spot. The owner has made it a meeting place for locals, and anyone who is in the know...or wants to be. Speakers and music of all kinds and subject matter are calmed ares nightly. There is a quarterly Community Crawl that has its participants meandering... More

The clerk seemed like she really wanted to be somewhere else, and she scoffed at my 20% tip on a $5 breakfast. It's a dollar, and you handed me an apricot bar and an empty coffee mug. Sorry that I didn't over pay for simple gestures.

Thank Richard K
