Panama Red Coffee Co.

First and foremost, the people there are nice. That's a rarity in the bay area. These folks care about the coffee, the store, the customers, and each other. And they put up with us poor saps who come in almost every day to work for a bit. The coffee's really good for a coffee shop (I roast my own at home, so I'm a picky bastard).
If you stop by Todos Santos Plaza for the farmer's market, if you're in the mood for live music many evenings, or just if you need a comfy place to relax with a good cup of coffee/tea/fruit smoothie, Panama Red's your place.
