Ample coffee and sweets look good but not for me. People watching is exceptional, right next to campus. Pick a sunny not to hot day or foggy morning with large coffee.

Nice to sit outside on the edge of the Campus . The sort of lattice over head, the outside tables,, the coffee in a glass, the short bread and pastries look good

Fun but serious café on Bancroft Way across from the University. Populated by students (mostly), faculty, and academic groupies. On nice days, good outdoor seating with Wi-Fi. Beverages are good. Snacks also. If you're visiting, stop by for the ambiance, too.

Right next to the UC Berkeley campus, this is the place to get a great cup of coffee and a pastry. The outdoor seating is shaded and relaxing. A good place to hang out, check your wi-fi, and relax. Chocolate chip muffins are superb.
