Welcome to a cafe synonymous with Berkeley itself. Located directly across the street from the University , and open late, this is the perfect place to study, relax, rev up or just congregate. There are several outside tables, making this the perfect spot for sipping delicious coffee drinks al fresco. There is no telling how many famous novels, poems and quantum mechanic theories have been formulated, hammered out and perfected right here. Find a strong and inexpensive assortment of coffee and espresso drinks. There are pastries, including muffins, scones, croissants and the ubiquitous macaroons.
The coffee was good; good ambiance, etc.
However, the straw my husband was using shriveled up and stopped working. We went through about 4 straws while Jim was trying to drink his coffee.
Strada uses straws which are biodegradable.
Some people with disabilities cannot drink beverages without using a straw. It would be a good idea if Caffe Strada had some other choices of straws for people who need a straw in order to drink a hot beverage.
Besides having great outdoor seating, Strada's iced coffee is to die for. I am not clear how it's made although expresso is used. Not to worry though, the result does not seem any more jet-fueled than standard iced coffee. I go out of my way to have the coffee here.
I love Caffe Strada, which is why it pains me to report that they recently had a number of laptop thefts by an armed man. So go, but if you go, leave the laptop at home or use it at an indoor table. (More details on the incident are in this week's East Bay Express.)
This is a great outdoor seating coffee shop in prime location near Berkeley's campus. Always a great vibe as several students are there talking or studying. A huge selection of flavors and a great bakery special every day... maybe the best coffee shop in Berkeley.
really great place to relax with a book/get on with some work. they have powerpoints on the bases of the trees in the outside seating area, so you can even plug your laptop in. The trees also give that much needed shade on the sunnier days.
Order your coffee from the guy on the left- he makes it better than the others.
strada is a great european style cafe close to campus. the outdoor tables are really what make the atmosphere here, a great place to relax and people watch during the afternoon or evening, with a distinctly european feel. they serve tasty mochas with fresh made whipped cream here. the bathroom is only for the brave.
