San Jose

What makes a coffee shop great? Is it the actual coffee or is it the ambiance of the cafe or is it a combination of both? People have various reasons for why they continue to visit a specific place. Personally, I enjoy the full experience that a cafe might give me—from the coffee to the little tiny details of their presentation. Sometimes I may just frequent that coffee shop because I find it to be a great spot to enjoy some coffee and people watch.


Here are some of the top local coffee spots that I consider to be pretty cool in San Jose:
