This place is always busy, but the coffee is really nice. And there is a small lounge area in the back with some toys and benches for parents with young children (that's us!) to sit down for a bit and enjoy the coffee. It's my...More

The cold brew coffee is top notch. Great service and really cool décor. This is the perfect place to grab a coffee in Santa Clara! You can even sit outside too if the weather is nice.

Had a lovely cold coffee about a week ago. The place is nice and well lit. I like the standing tables, a nice idea for short visits. Went back later in the week for grilled cheese for lunch. It tasted excellent, but the sheer amount...More

I love me a good latte and chromatic serves them up creamy, warm and adoringly. It's a mid sized coffee shop in a strip mall next to a bofa and right off 280. It's got lots of seating - a bar up front facing the...More

Chromatic is a quaint, hip, artsy, and local coffee shop to Silicon Valley (Santa Clara). They have artisian coffee, so it's good for coffee passionistas who are not fussy or snotty, more artsy and foodie like. The size of the shop is small, so it's...More
