The food was great especially if you like home cooking not to mention the coffee it was awesome as well. And of course the people that work there are very good and always friendly.

I went here for coffee and breakfast on a Saturday morning. I liked the vibe of the place. Music was playing, but it was still peaceful and easy to have a conversation.

In a city of good coffee, Cafe Yesterday stands out. Happily, we were staying across the street and found reason for multiple visits: excellent morning cappuccino, a very satisfying and tasty breakfast sandwich, darkly flavorful afternoon expresso, tasty cookies, a competent and friendly staff, and a relaxed environment with excellent wifi.

There are lots of good cafes in the Berkeley area, but I kept on running into the issue of inadequate wifi. Cafe Yesterday is the solution! Fastest wifi I've been able to find, which is a huge plus. And also just a great cafe with good prices, good coffee, and pleasant staff. Will be becoming a regular!

Came here to work during the day while staying at the Rodeway Inn - it's less than a half mile away, totally walkable.

Good fast free WiFi and didn't get too crowded the morning I was there. The... More

If you want an inexpensive but fabulous sandwiches and salads then this is the place. It has agreat atmosphere and some evenings they even have open mike for you to show case yourself. Try the white chicken breast sandwich. It is the best.

My dream cafe. Knowledgable and NiCE staff, really tasty cookies and delish strong coffee! Love it!!! Too bad I don't live nearby. Or maybe it's good or I'd spend all my time and money there.
