Coffee shops are a staple of Berkeley’s culture with minimal chain restaurants and family-owned stores aplenty, it can be hard to choose from the amazing selection of cappuccinos and matcha lattes. Cafe Strada, a 30 second stroll from the UC Berkeley campus is a Cal favorite where on an average day you can see students and faculty alike working alongside one another in their beautiful outdoor seating. Once you’ve grabbed your caffeinated beverage of choice, take the long trek across the street to see the beauty of the glass Music Library and through Faculty Glade you might just catch students rolling down the grassy hill in hopes of a 4.0.
