Best Place To Pretend You're In Berkeley

Mozart's Coffee Roasters

With it's oldwood, almost-all-windows interior and enormous outdoor deck on the lake, it's no wonder that Mozart’s is populated by writerly and professorly looking folk with laptops. Located off Lake Austin Blvd. at the foot of one of our fair city’s tonier Baby Boomer enclaves, Mozart’s serves up fresher-than-fresh caffeine with its classical music. Despite the middle-class air, and its unfortunate proximity to loud party animals at Hula Hut, Mozart's is a great place to hang out, with an almost elegant, cerebral vibe of "work gets done here." The view is incredible, especially during the day, when most of the aging hippies and hipsters w/o desk jobs come to telecommute, design their web sites, write their poetry, and gaze out the window while sipping their bottomless lattes.
