Today’s The Santa Clara (Santa Clara University‘s undergraduate paper) published a brief piece on the different café “atmosphere” options for coffee drinkers in the area: Finding the coffee shop that’s right for you – Scene.

Ah, yes — the old “All coffees are created equal, but how about those curtains?!” trap. (I’m reminded of the punchline to the old restaurant-on-the-moon joke: “Good food, but no atmosphere.”) The article mentions the usual suspects plus Mission City Coffee Roasting Co., City Lights Espresso, and the Cocola Bakery on Santana Row (sister to the Cocola Bakery in the San Francisco Centre). But it is a moral outrage that the author makes no mention of Barefoot — even if it’s not about the atmosphere.
