thumbnail for Monkey Forest RoadIn my personal opinion, this is the best coffee shop in the Bay Area. I know that is a very bold statement, but have one cup of the Verve brewed coffee and you will be singing the same tune. Also, stop in to check the art exhibits they have in the shop, they take it above and beyond your typical coffee shop paintings.
