I went in to Dr Insomnia's for a cafe latte with a friend. We then sat outside in the cute interior patio area. It was my first visit. It was busy and obviously a well loved local establishment.

The menu looked like it had a nice variety of treats and food for a coffee cafe. I didn't eat there.

There were tables outside in front of the cafe which were full and seating inside in a back room that lacked the appeal of the rest of the business.

My cafe latte was good. A bit milky... I know it's the latte! Still.

A great smaller-sized cafe with good drinks and pastries. They serve other food (breakfast and lunch items) that I haven't sampled yet. Layout is interesting with smaller rooms separated by walls, which helps cut down the noise. There's a large outdoor area as well that is great when the weather permits.

Love this hometown, non-corporate, coffee cafe. Pleasant sidewalk seating where you can have your well-behaved dog. Indoors is cozy and friendly. It's a real gem. Oh yeah, the coffee is excellent too!

Best coffee in Novato in my opinion. The outside tables are spread out enough for privacy. It is my Sunday morning destination.

This is a wonderful little coffee house with great home made pastries. I enjoy supporting a local business that isn't a very large chain store. Well worth the time.
