Caffe Strada
  2300 College Ave./Bancroft Way, (510) 843-5282.  Cash only.  I am particularly fond of this coffeehouse located directly across from campus because of its expansive outdoor seating sheltered by mature trees.  Outdoor heaters make it pleasant even in our cold evenings.  Because it is continuously busy, finding a table can be difficult.  Students are attracted by the free WiFi and sometimes set up shop for the day.  But I always find somewhere to perch.  The usual coffees are on the menu, of course, but I favor the Strada Bianca (white chocolate milk) on ice.  Pastries, cookies, cakes, brownies, scones, and more are also available.  Out of cash?--there's an ATM inside.
